About Canvas Stretcher Bars:

Most of the artists will admit the fact that painting on a canvas is a perfect medium to express their creative talent. A good canvas stretcher is a combination of comfort, proper shape and balanced edges. The canvas is arranged over the bars and tightened with the help of clamps to make a rectangular base frame. It is stretched in a proper way to generate a smooth and crease-free surface.

The bars for canvas stretcher are available in various materials such as wood, metal and alloys. Most artists prefer wood because of its smooth finish. Pine wood is considered very appropriate for this purpose. Advanced techniques are employed for the manufacturing of these bars to ensure a perfect fit.

Now, with the availability of online stores, it has become quite convenient to find quality bars for canvas stretcher. You can visit these websites to evaluate the deals and specifications. You may order your selected bars with just a press of a button. The online stores also ensure proper packaging as well as delivery of your product and sometimes, may even provide on-site assembling.

Tips to Purchase the Best Canvas Stretching Bars:

There are certain factors that need to be considered while purchasing the canvas stretching bars such as:

The stretcher bars should be composed of good quality wood

They should have smooth edges

They should be rot resistant since rot can destroy the painted surface by causing mould

The shape of the stretcher bars should be selected as per your requirements

There are different varieties of bars available like medium duty bars, light duty bars, heavy duty bars/ Goldilocks medium, heavy duty Midi and super heavy duty bars. Medium duty bars are the standard bars with raised and rounded edges. Light duty bars are ideal for small paintings. Heavy duty stretcher bars are expensive and a dream come true for those who need a substantial side profile for their valuable artwork. Whereas strong heavy duty bars offer an exceptional quality at reasonable rate.

With the right selection of stretching bars, you can be sure of trouble-free performance year after year.
