Winsor & Newton Artists’ Canvas Board:
What Is Canvas Board?
Made by stretching, and then affixing, cotton or linen canvas over a rigid base of card or wood, Canvas Board offers a firm support for artistic creations.
How do I choose a Canvas?
Canvas is graded according to weight and tightness of weave. Ranging from 1 to 12, a low number indicates a coarse grain, whereas the finest grains are represented by the highest numbers. Often, canvas is simply graded as “Coarse”, “Medium” and “Fine”.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Artists’ Canvas Board?
An inexpensive alternative to Stretched Cotton Canvas , the triple primed, medium grain surface of Winsor & Newton’s Artists’ Canvas Board prevents the sinking of oil colour, and supports all media, including Oil Paint, Acrylic Colour and Gouache.
Who are Winsor & Newton?
