Claessens Universal Primed Artists' Cotton Canvas Roll

Claessens Universal Primed Artists' Cotton Canvas Roll

Claessens provides artists with professional quality canvases traditionally woven from 100% pure flax (linen), 100% pure cotton, 100% pure jute, a mix of linen and cotton or a mix of linen and jute. 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 Universally primed canvases, two coats are applied of acrylic-bound titanium white paint to the canvas by the means of a knife. This is done once with a ‘knife’ and not rolled at the last stage. As the primer and coating are water-based, these universal primed canvases are dried in a hot-air oven, where the water can evaporate more quickly. 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.
