Canvas & Painting Surfaces
Canvas fabric can be woven both from natural and synthetic fibers. The natural fibers most commonly used are linen and cotton. Linen is by far the superior because of its strength and resistance to decay. Woven from flax, the weave persists throughout many layers of paint in both fine and course textures. This is the fiber that Rembrandt's masterpieces are painted on. Plaza Artist Materials has a variety of canvases including stretched paint canvas, canvas panels, rolls of paint canvas, and accessories like a canvas stretching pliers. Choose your paint canvas according to your preference and the medium you will be working with.
