Claessens Oil Primed Artists' Linen Canvas Roll

Claessens Oil Primed Artists' Linen Canvas Roll

Claessens provides artists with professional quality canvases traditionally woven from 100% pure flex (Linen). Each specific primed linen type is passed through its own set of manufacturing steps and quality control, resulting in premium painting surfaces Claessens is renowned for. After receiving the raw linens, quality control carefully inspects the entire surface for weaving faults. Abnormally thick threads are scrupulously removed. Next, two layers of synthetic adhesive are applied. Each layer is dried on the canvas in a warm-air oven.

For oil primed canvases, zinc white is used as the first coat, bound with linseed oil; carefully applied to the glued linen with trowel-like knives. Then the canvas is sanded and a layer with a white titanium base is applied in the same fashion, then placed in a drying room for 3 days to air dry naturally. Double primed canvases undergo the same process again, as do additional priming’s. After the final coating is applied, the canvas is moved back to the drying room for 10 days.

The finished canvases are then again carefully inspected one last time and carefully rolled up and wrapped in damp proof paper.

Available in 1 Meter / 5 Meter and 10 Meter Rolls.
