Deep Edge Canvas (sometimes called Chunky or 3D) has become the most popular format of stretched canvas to paint or draw onto. It normally is standard quality 8oz cotton canvas stretched over a 38mm deep, stretcher bar and then stapled on the back. Due to the fact that it is stapled on the back means that the artwork (when completed) does not need to be framed, although this can be done if desired)and hung straight onto the wall. It is very popular in 'modern art' painting to paint on the side walls of the canvas giving an almost 3D effect to your artwork.
This range has been extended to include the new Winsor Deep Edge, with a depth of 38mm. The stretched canvas is of medium grain, made from 100% cotton and is ideal for use with oil (including water mixable) acrylic and alkyd colour. Deep Edge Canvas offers the artist a good quality, acid-free, cotton canvas that has been double coated with primer.It is stapled on the rear of the frame. To accommodate latest trends, the edges are clean so that you can paint around the sides and there is no need for framing. Winsor Deep Edge is available in rectangular, square and maritime formats.
