Originally a sketcher's product these superior quality canvas boards feature canvas laminated onto high quality boards of excellent stability. They are stretched by hand for correct tension with tailored corners and are triple coated with one coat of acid free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented primer. This helps to give the boards a balanced absorbency and tooth which prevents sinking of oil colours and improves adhesion. The medium grain surface is ideal for all techniques including heavier applications of colour. Artists' Canvas Board is prepared for immediate use and is suitable for use with oil (including water mixable oil), alkyd and acrylic colours.
