Stretched canvas

The entire range of Talens canvases is of premium quality. Both the linen and cotton canvases have been carefully prepared and tightly stretched, allowing the user to get started straightaway. Moreover, the user is guaranteed an optimally adhesive ground.

A good artists' canvas has to meet a number of important criteria:

• The canvas stretcher has to be not only of excellent quality, but also sufficiently thick. This removes the risk of warping.
• A well woven canvas does not have any visible knots or loose threads in the linen or cotton. A good quality canvas is carefully prepared in order to ensure optimal adhesion of the applied paint.
• An acid-free primer ensures furthermore that the paint does not penetrate the canvas or becomes visible at the back of the canvas.
