Artist Canvas | #12 | 72″ Width
Artist canvas is one of our most popular fabrics designed for the aggressive painter and perfect for heavy paint applications. It is made with plied yarns (#12 or Number 12 Duck), and double coated with acrylic gesso. This is comparable to Fredrix Dixie Primed Cotton Canvas and Masterpiece Sausalito Acrylic Primed 12oz. Cotton Canvas.
For hundreds of years, artists have utilized canvas to express their creativity, and to this day canvas remains the preferred painting surface for novice beginners new to canvas painting and masters alike, especially for acrylic painting.
Canvas is an extremely versatile painting surface, and comes in a variety of widths, sizes and weights to suit every need and every budget. Canvas for painting is very flexible and can be used for everything from tiny paintings to large, expansive works. However, the two main reasons why canvas is such a popular surface among painters is due to how great it feels under the brush, as well as its obvious durability and longevity. It’s lighter weight as compared to traditional wood surfaces makes it significantly easier to transport, and which is why its popularity grew so quickly so long ago!
The texture of canvas is due to its construction from natural fibers that are woven together, producing a different fell based on how finely it is woven. Aside from texture, the weight of the canvas should be considered. Measured in ounces per yard, the canvas’ weight is determined by the density of the thread. The higher the density (weight), the higher the quality of the canvas.
