Blick Unprimed Belgian Linen Canvas

Blick Unprimed Linen is produced in Belgium, where growing conditions and expert cultivation produce the highest-quality, long-line fibers. The proprietary weave configurations are exclusive to Blick, and are produced according to our demanding specifications. All styles are left unprimed and ready for your signature preparation.

Order Fulfillment Note — As we complete a transition in stock, your order may be fulfilled with either Blick or Utrecht brand canvas. Rest assured, both are manufactured in the same factory, according to the same demanding specifications, and are 100% guaranteed for quality and satisfaction.

NOTE — Pieces up to 6 yards long are shipped folded. Longer pieces are shipped in rolls (extra charges may apply).

Type 185 — An excellent general purpose linen with a smooth texture, Blick Type 185 is tightly woven from single-ply threads. It has a substantial 9.3 oz raw weight. The 125" width lets you work on a grand scale.

Type 74D — Constructed with a double weave pattern for outstanding strength. The medium texture makes it a versatile choice for most subjects, techniques, and painting styles. It has a 10.9 oz raw weight. All pieces are 54" wide.

Type 73D — If you're looking for a perfect midpoint texture between fine and medium, Blick Type 73D is an ideal choice. It is tightly woven for smoothness, but uses double warp and weft strands for strength, with a resulting unprimed weight of 8.4 oz — great for a wide range of subjects and techniques. It has a generous 72" width.

Type 215 — This heavier, 11.5 oz, medium-rough linen canvas is ideal for those who prefer a bit of brush drag and residual texture. All pieces measure 84" wide.

Type 79D — This is a heavyweight, double weave linen with a rough finish and a 10.35 oz weight. It's ideal for artists who prefer coarsely textural paintings with lots of brush drag. All pieces are 76" wide. NOTE: Rabbit skin glue sizing is not compatible with this linen type. Use PVA sizing, acrylic sizing, or acrylic gesso to prepare Blick Type 79D Linen.

Type 144 — Tightly woven with a smooth, single weave texture, this Belgian linen canvas is ideal for highly detailed work and portraiture. It has a 6 oz weight. All pieces measure 84" wide.

Type 66J — Very smooth and tightly woven, Blick Type 66J is the professional portraitist's dream. The fine surface is also great for realistic landscapes or any genre where capturing detail is the goal. Constructed with single strands for both warp and weft, it has an 8.85 oz raw weight. All pieces are 54" wide.

Type 200 — A herringbone texture sets Blick Type 200 Linen apart. Constructed from 100% pure Belgian single-ply linen threads, it has an extra-heavy 13 oz raw weight. All pieces are 55" wide.

Type 135 — This is an excellent general purpose linen with a medium-smooth, single weave texture. It has a 9.45 oz raw weight. All pieces measure 54" wide.
