Linen is a sturdy material with a characteristic texture that is often used with oil paint and is heavier and stronger than cotton. This makes it highly suitable for use with heavier materials such as small objects, various mediums and thicker coats of paint. Linen can be stretched tighter than other materials, which minimises the chances of the canvas warping or bending. Talens offers a wide range of cotton canvasses as well.
