Masterpiece Monet Pro Monterey 1½" Profile Cotton Canvas is a top-quality, professional surface for oil or acrylic painting.
Masterpiece's popular 7 oz Monterey cotton canvas is sized and then double-primed with acrylic gesso, yielding an archival, acid-free, and leach-free surface with a 10.5 oz finished weight. The canvas is stretched using the proprietary MuseumWrap method, which yields a balanced tension up to 50% tighter than canvases stretched using other methods. Clean, staple-free edges are perfect for an elegant frameless display.
Expertly constructed, Monet Pro Monterey Canvas provides superior frame support using a patent-pending, keyable cross-brace technology for sizes
The canvas stays tighter due to the drum-tight stretch, and because the cross braces prevent the stretcher bars from bowing inward and the canvas from slackening. To increase canvas tension, slightly expand the size of the frame by forcing the corner keys and brace keys (included) further into their respective slots. This unique system makes it possible to tension the canvas in the middle of the frame — just where it's needed most.
The 1½" deep profile offers very strong support. Stretcher bars are tapered to yield full relief to the canvas, preventing those unsightly lines created when the canvas touches the bar underneath. Uncut, folded corners and extra canvas selvage leave the canvas intact and re-stretchable on the same size frame.
