Titian Cotton Stretched Canvases
24×48″ Artist Canvases are a staple item in the art world. You can draw on a canvas, paint it, and use it to make a sculptural piece. Stretched canvases are ideal for various mediums, including acrylics, gouache, oil and watercolour paints. To have a fresh, white canvas speaks of all kinds of creativity.
Titian canvases have a cotton weight of 12 oz – 420 gsm. The canvas is 100% unbleached cotton and stretched over a timber pine frame with a 38mm – 3.8 cm edge. The thickness of the canvas and the kiln-dried timber gives the pre-stretched canvas added stability and allows it to be used for various projects.
The cotton in this Titian canvas range is coated with three layers of titanium white gesso. This primer creates an excellent barrier to work on. Using artist-quality pigments, you do not need to worry about wasting your paints. The paints will blend and sit beautifully on the primed surface.
A well-primed, gessoed canvas will give the artist a smoother surface and allow your brush to flow much better. Poorly primed canvases draw the fluidity out of your paint. The colour tends to sink into the canvas and gets trapped between the cotton fibres. As a result, you use more paint and will most likely get dull patches on the surface.
The Titian cotton canvas features a relatively standard medium weave. You might encounter a few bumps across the canvas here and there while working.
Framing your 24×48″ Artist Canvases
The Titian canvas range features staple-free edges. Staples are not visible when the canvas is hung. You can hang a stretched Titian cotton canvas directly onto a wall without framing. Screw some D hooks and use some soft nylon string, and you are done. If you want to frame your canvas in a frame, the Titian canvases can easily be float framed, or you can have the frame directly pushed up against the sides.
