Welcome to dickblick
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, 4.5 oz 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 primed 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.
Blick Premier Belgian Linen Canvas is a versatile surface that's ideal for all oil painting techniques.
Stretched Canvas Care — Because they are made of natural materials, changes in temperature and humidity may cause stretched canvases to shift or adjust over time. To enhance stability, store them vertically in a climate-controlled space.

I truly liked these canvases.
By Soo Kim
from Bridgeport, CT
There isn't anything I can think, if an oil painter is looking for a top quality linen canvas. I bought three of 24" x 20" oil primed with heavy duty frames(1-3/8" profile), which were delivered to me in Arizona where I was vacationing by an express delivery system. Brick handled the order with utmost care and professionalism. I finished three landscape paintings which I am content with the result. The level of even tension of the canvas surface, along with fine finish texture oil prime made me feel engaged and comfortable in brush strokes.

I love the oil primed linen canvas! Paint just glides on, but it's not slick. The texture is lovely, just perfect for me. I don't know whether it's the canvas, or my confidence in using the Primed Belgian Linen, but I feel I do some of my best work this product. And, no canvas prep work! Just remove wrapper, and paint!

Perfect primed linen to drag my paint across. Easy to create depth. In the past I stretched my canvas, it got harder to find, too expensive. Due to limited space I have standardized nonamestudio oil paintings by Randolph Evans 20X30 oil primed linen. Currently on back order until January 5 2017. Best surface I ever painted on. 50+ years experience wasting paint. I do sell my work to buy more canvas, in the hole until recently, then you didn't have any.That's okay and by the way I live 59 miles from Galesburg on route 29 outside of Chillicothe..

Lately, I have been painting on these canvases, which I have been buying from Blick. I love working on them! The oil goes on beautifully and the results are extraordinary.

This was my first time ordering a stretched canvas as I always built and stretched my own. I will be using the stretched canvass for oil painting. It appears to be a quality product, stretched nicely and square. I was pleased that you used heavier stretcher bars and that they have a middle support. There is no way to say if anything is not great about the product as only time will be the judge. I look forward to painting on your pre stretched linen canvas.

Enjoyed painting on this quality linen surface great for detail, and a nice feel and texture.. Colors seemed to have more depth.

The quality of the surface is very nice and gives an old masters texture to the painting (especially when using Daniel Greene paints). However, the top of one 16 x 20 canvas has warped downward in the middle. I think I can cover the problem with a frame, not sure yet. This may be a one-time problem. I hope so.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
