Regular price $90.00 $0.00 Unit price per

Avoid all the archival pitfalls of pre-manufactured canvases or pre-gessoed canvas or linen by learning the technology and processes for building perfectly permanent substrates for you oil or acrylic paintings. Throw current conventions away and go with current technology instead.

In this course you will learn and apply the best and latest canvas building practices that have been gleaned from art conservation scientists - from how to measure, cut and properly align linen or canvas, the best sizing for your fabric and how to apply it, the best stretching methods that outperform the traditional ones, the very best  structural supports and how they are built, and the best grounds specifically for your paint practice and how to apply them.

If you are a serious painter, I implore you to take this quick, easy and inexpensive course that will make your artwork permanent and safe from the ravages of time: fabric rotting, or painting film wear, tear and cracking. Every single painter needs to know this hard-won, invaluable, latest information. You owe to your artwork to maintain its structural integrity, so that it can be enjoyed generations from now.
