Considered the ultimate painting surface for oils, Belgian linen is the highest-quality substrate available for artists who seek a luxurious painting experience and the best archival longevity. True to its name, Blick Premier Belgian Linen Canvas offers premier quality at an affordable Blick price.
We begin with 100% pure, medium texture linen that's been prepared, picked, and pumiced by hand in Belgium. Using a special technique perfected by the Old Masters, each canvas is then hand-coated in the USA with three applications of an oil-based, lead-free primer to reach a 10 oz finished weight.
The linen is then back-stapled to kiln-dried, high-density, North American-grown pine stretcher bars with an impressive 1-3/8" profile. The frame is constructed with tenon corners for added strength, and eight keys are included for minor tension adjustments over time. Blanket-fold corners assure ease of re-stretching. Triple-coated with oil-based primer, suitable for oil painting only.
