Fredrix Canvas Pad:
What Is Canvas?
Traditionally manufactured from hemp, for its tough fibres, Canvas is now primarily produced from either linen or cotton. Cotton Canvas provides an inexpensive alternative to Linen Canvas which has finer strands, producing a highly intricate weave. Cotton Duck Canvas is most commonly used for painting with oil colour.
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 Fredrix Canvas Pad?
An inexpensive alternative to Stretched Canvas, Fredrix Canvas Pad provides an ideal, lightweight working surface, perfect for field work or art studies.
Who are Fredrix?
Founded in 1868 by E. H. Friedrichs, a chemist, inventor and businessman, Fredrix was the first company in America to manufacture artist canvas for trade. Fredrix remains a prestigious marque in the production of canvas, keeping today’s product a close match to the canvas they made over 140 years ago.
