Canvas Stretching Tools


Form the foundation of your paintings — stretch your own canvas with canvas stretching tools. Find a wide assortment of canvas pliers, staple guns and staples, and clamps to adhere canvas from a roll and onto stretcher bars.


Start with a primed or unprimed canvas or linen roll, and cut it to the size you want to create on. Use canvas pliers to help create a tight pull on the canvas. Clamps secure the canvas to the stretcher bars while you staple the canvas down.


Canvas Pliers are used to aid in the stretching of canvas on to stretcher bars. The pliers allow the artists to maintain a secure hold on the canvas and provide leverage against the stretcher bar for a tight stretch. Canvas pliers are a good idea for artists who will be stretching the canvas by themselves and for artists stretching larger canvases.


Clamps are useful in helping to keep canvas pulled tight or held in place. They can also be used to keep stretcher bars aligned.
