What Is Canvas?

Traditionally manufactured from hemp, for its tough fibres, Canvas is now primarily produced from either linen or cotton. Cotton Canvas offers an inexpensive alternative to Linen Canvas, which has finer strands, producing a highly intricate weave, with a regular pattern. Differing from other heavy cotton fabrics, having a plain rather than twill weave, cotton canvas is available in plain and duck varieties. The threads in Cotton Duck Canvas are more tightly woven than classic cotton canvas, providing better surface tension and an ideal support when painting with oil colour.

How do I choose a Canvas?

Canvas is graded according to weight and tightness of weave. Ranging from 1 to 15oz, 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”. You can choose from a wide variety of canvas rolls on our website.

Why choose 9oz Cotton Duck Unprimed Canvas?

Canvas good for the price. Could be a bit thicker. and pre-primed would have been better. I only needed enough for one picture so didn't want a roll of canvas.
