This range of Winsor & Newton linen canvases provide an exceptionally durable and smooth surface that is perfect for all oil and acrylic paints. Each canvas is made from a high quality 390gsm linen that is both acid-free and of archival quality, providing an increased longevity to your work and protects against discoloration and the linen fibres from degrading over time which can happen when using oil paints.
The linen fibres are tightly woven to achieve a more even and smooth texture compared to cotton cloth, and are stretched over spruce wood bars which are kiln-dried, this increases the frames resistance to warping and offers superior protection to moisture. They are all stretched by hand however they do come with wood keys should you want to control and adjust the level of tension across the fabric.
Each of the 6 canvas included have a depth of 0.75 inches giving them more robustness and stability without making it too bulky and large. They are all primed with a richly pigmented titanium dioxide Gesso which gives the surface the perfect balance of tooth and absorbency so it’s ready to paint on immediately.
