Lean on the bridge, not on your work!
Testrite's Artist Bridge is a sturdy, transparent acrylic shelf that allows you to add details to your painting without smearing the wet parts, to rule straight lines with a brush or pen, or to steady a shaking hand.
It fits over canvas panels and traditional depth stretched canvases.

Comments about Testrite Artist Bridge:
I was surprised at how sturdy this bridge is. It is comfortable and works well with charcoal drawing on a flat or slightly angled surface

A wonderful tool
I no longer smudge! I use this to transfer my line drawings to canvas so they are ready to paint. Always was a messy job, with lots of unwanted graphite getting on the canvas. I spent a lot of time erasing. The bridge fits wonderfully over canvas and provides a sturdy support. I like the fact there is a hole drilled in the lucite so the bridge can be hung on the wall and out of the way. Makes storing it easy.
Very helpful....quick response!

I worked exactly like I hoped it would. It is comfortable.
Great and handy!!!
from Central Coast, CA
The Artist Bridge is a wonderful thing! It was such a joy to use it for transferring an image to my watercolor paper! I didn't have any mess left by graphite transferring why you move your hand over the paper. I bought this bridge for drawing work, but found a great additional application for this tool! Love it!

I do alot of pencil drawings and I really like this. Only thing i would change is... It could be a little wider
from Nashville, TN
I probably should have gotten a size up because I use it for ICON painting but I just had to put some felt pads to rais it up above the surface of the Icon board. So now it works perfectly and for Icon painters I might suggest the larger option
Artist Bridge to assist hand tremors
By Painted Lady
from Glen Allen, VA
I had been searching for some sort of support to use with detailed watercolor painting, so purchased both sizes to use at home. I am a painting instructor at local Art Center, and was observing one of my students who hands were plagued with constant tremors, so I brought them in for her to try to support her hands while doing an acrylic painting. She was so amazed & happy, it worked wonderfully!! This order is for a set of her own to keep at home now, and I will keep mine at the classroom. I really like the Transparency of the bridges so you can observe your work entirely as you are painting, too!
A necessary device...
from Brimfield, MA
If you work flat as I do, this is the best way to keep your work pristine. And the fact that it's transparent is a plus. I love it!

Great product, BUT...
It is a great product, but it isn't high enough. Unless you use canvases with no depth. or boards, or paper, it just isn't high enough...still it works well so I cut some wooden blocks, glued them on, and now it is fine.
