Painters Canvas/ Drop Cloth
The base fabric of our painters canvas is made up of A grade cotton duck fabrics. Primed canvas is available in 7 oz, 10 oz, #12 and #8 cotton duck. Canvas should be purchased slightly wider or longer than the desired size (due to slight residual shrinking).
Please keep in mind all our primed canvas fabrics won’t be primed to edge (width wise). There will always be a section along the edge of the fabric that is unprimed. Priming adds roughly 3 ounces per square yard to the weight of the fabric.
Painters Canvas fabric can be used in numerous other applications, including: painters canvas drop cloth, painters tarp canvas, canvas art, canvas painter drop sheets, painters canvas curtains, and white canvas painters tarps. This all purpose canvas fabric is ideal for paint covers and to mitigate spill protection while also serving as wall treatments! Protective white tarps can help safeguard your painting applications, automobiles and even your furniture.
Painter’s Canvas for Artists
A 10 oz painters canvas is a 10 oz single filled duck canvas that has been primed and now weighs roughly 13 oz/ square yard. Therefore, all our painters canvas except #8 cotton duck is used for stretching, but the most popular ones would be the 7 oz and the 10 oz canvas.
To clarify, #12 and #10 artist canvas are used for murals and backdrops. They are sturdier and more durable and can be taken down, rolled up, and easily transported to a new location with little hassle. #8 duck artist canvas is primarily used for floorcloths, table mats, and runners. Painters canvas drop cloth uses are quite varied, as this canvas drop cloth is created to handle heavy duty home improvement project and any paint. Made from 100% cotton duck canvas fabric, this canvas protects floors, carpets, furniture and equipment. Customers love this material as it absorbs paint spills, traps dust/ debris for quick clean-up. The heavy-duty rot-resistant thread ensures that this canvas drop cloth is washable and reusable.
Artist Canvas Rolls from Canvas ETC
Shipping on our pre primed canvas is slightly higher if 4 yards or less is purchased at time (see quantity discounts below). Painting canvas usually has various textures and surfaces depending on the amount of gesso applied to the fabric.
Markedly, the lighter weight 7 oz and 10 canvas usually has a rougher texture when compared to the #12, #10 and #8 duck fabrics. We can also slit your pre primed canvas into custom widths for art and craft projects (custom squares, etc…).
Pre slit primed canvas has been used to manufacture canvas boards. Generally, once the fabric has been slit to width, our customers cut it to length and glue it to the boards. Overall, our primed canvas can be used with acrylics, watercolor and oil paints.
