“As an artist myself and with decades of experience with art materials. Whenever I see a 48×60″ Primed Linen Canvas hanging in a gallery, I instantly know the artist works with high-quality materials.” Australian artist Nicki Comelli
48×60″ primed linen canvas; For centuries, artists have used canvases to express themselves. Even today, canvases are the most common paint surface for beginners, intermediate and professional artisans.
Linen was one of the first fabrics painted on by the masters, and today, it is still a popular choice.
Professional artists consider linen one of the finest surfaces to work on because of its renowned high-end quality and sturdiness. However, it is also one of the most pricey painting surfaces you can buy.
What is gesso?
Gesso is a white paint mixture that consists of a binder mixed with chalk, gypsum and pigment. It is used to prepare cardstock, canvas, wood panels, and sculpture as a base for paint and other materials. Fun fact; titanium white dioxide is non-toxic and can be a food ingredient.
Why purchase a linen canvas and have it painted with titanium white gesso?
If you want your paint colours to pop, this is the canvas. The Titian titanium white gesso canvases are super smooth to paint on. They have three dense layers of titanium white gesso, allowing your paints or media to sit on the canvas rather than be soaked in; this is great if you are using expensive pigmented acrylics or oils. This particular canvas’s surface will undoubtedly show your medium’s actual colours. If you paint with a true cadmium green, you will see a true cadmium green.
Titian linen white primed canvases have a quality you can feel straight away. These canvases are solid. They feature a thick, sturdy frame and corner braces of 58 mm.
These premium linen canvases have a linen weight of 12 oz – 450 gsm. The linen is from Belgium and is stretched over a thick timber pine frame with a 38mm – 3.8 cm edge. The kiln-dried timber, thickness and extra bracing in the Titian range give the pre-stretched canvas immense stability.
The canvas range features a staple-free back and edges; staples can not be seen when the canvas is displayed on a wall or a side dresser. If you like incorporating the sides of your canvas into your artwork, you can easily do this.
