Ideal for artists who require a smooth surface, our Fine Detail Cotton Canvas range is new for 2010. This finely woven canvas is aimed at artists who work on fine detail paintings such as portraits, still life, botanic studies and other detailed work.
Carefully prepared using one coat of acid free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented primer, the canvas offers excellent tooth and well balanced absorbency to prevent sinking of oil colour and improved adhesion.
This 100% cotton canvas has a primed weight of 10oz / 280gsm and is suitable for use with oil, acrylic and alkyd colour.
Need it super smooth? Whilst the canvas already has a fine surface it is possible to make the canvas even smoother by lightly sanding it with a fine grade sandpaper and applying a coat of primer so you can create the perfect surface for your needs.
All canvases come with corner wedges to achieve extra tension. Wedges are used to expand the stretcher if the canvas slackens in adverse weather conditions. Wedges should be placed in the corners and tapped in with a pin hammer.
