More Information

Made from high quality, heavy cotton, our 9oz Cotton Duck Primed Canvas is tightly woven, yet effortlessly stretched, making it ideal for mounting to bespoke canvas frames. 

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.

This video discusses The Differences Between Cotton Duck And Linen.

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”.

Why choose 9oz Cotton Duck Primed Canvas?

Affordable and easily stretched, 9oz Cotton Duck Primed Canvas has the substance to withstand heavy painting, and may be used with all media, including Oil Paint, Acrylic Colour and Gouache.

This pre-primed canvas can be mounted onto custom-made frames, ready for painting, or have further coats of Primer applied, to create a more substantial support.

Nicely primed canvas.. but it was slightly warped which made my job of painting photo backdrop a little difficult. No other complaints.
High-quality, study canvas with an excellent primer coat. I used this for making hand-painted canvas backdrops, and it worked perfectly for this. The primer coat is very think and there are no wrinkles or flaws. My paint went on smoothly and did not bleed through at all. Would heartily recommend this product.
