Royal Talens Stretched Canvas Linen 20x20cm
Royal Talens Stretched Linen Canvases offer a great value, quality support for Oil, Water-mixable Oil and Acrylic paints.
As you would expect from a quality canvas, the stretchers are made from excellent quality pine sourced from managed forests that are thick enough to withstand warping and have a rounded raised edge that holds the canvas away from the frame.
Beechwood 'wedges' are included for re-tensioning. These are tapped into the notches at the corners of the stretcher bars, when necessary, to gently prise the bars apart and increase the stretch on the material.
The pure linen material is 360g/m2 in weight and of a medium structure with 12.5x12.5 threads per square cm. It is hand primed with 1 layer of natural glue and 2 layers of acid free, acrylic-based gesso which stops oil penetration and provides extremely good adhesion for oil, water-mixable oil and acrylic paint.
Linen benefits from being more absorbent than cotton which is also more prone to hanging loosely when wet or when water-based paint is used. Once dry the canvas will automatically become taut again. What's more, linen will last longer than cotton.
Made in Poland.
