How is the canvas made? First, the cotton duck is grown and woven in India. Then the canvas is coated with three layers of professional-grade, acid-free gesso. It’s carefully sanded between primer coats for a smooth, luxurious surface with just the right tooth.
Finally, the primed fabric is evenly stretched around Blick Premier solid wood stretcher bars, which are kiln-dried for warp-resistance and long-term stability.
Larger canvas sizes are braced for extra support. Cross brace configurations may vary by size and style.
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.
