Artwork Techniques: Testing Out New Canvases


“I learnt how to make your own canvases back in 2002 during my Access Art and Media Diploma. I practiced it again in 2004, but it isn’t until recently that I have re-tried making my own canvases. The fact is there is only a certain amount if space and old paintings take up a lot of space. So, I decided to try out an idea I have had for years, with A LOT of help.

I removed the old painting off of the frame and it meant I could roll up my old artwork for use in future projects and create a brand new canvas. I have discovered that these canvases are better than anything you could buy. The first examples of these canvases are shown below. I have used natural cotton linen fabric from a seller on eBay, stretched it, used a heavy weight staple gun and covered it with clear gesso.”

The results are a stunning canvas which is a true pleasure to use, as shown below:
