Loxley Gold Artists canvases are known by for their high quality and finish. The priming formula, developed by Loxley, provides the correct surface for holding the paint whilst preventing the colour from sinking into the cotton. This 100% cotton canvas has a medium grain and smooth texture, making it ideal for all techniques including Impasto, wet-on-wet, Glazing etc) in Alkyd, Acrylic and Oil paints. Each canvas is hand-stretched over specially profiled wooden stretcher bars and stapled on the reverse, leaving the sides clean. This, along with the carefully tailored corners, allows the finished painting to be hung either unframed or framed as you wish. The mitred corners are made with a free floating tongue and groove so that the canvas can be re-tensioned if needed using the supplied wedges. There are a vast range of sizes available in the Loxley Gold Standard/Traditional 18mm depth and in the modern Chunky 36mm depth. The larger of the canvases have cross bars to add strength and stability to the frame. The cross bars in the Loxley Gold 18mm deep range have rounded edges to prevent paint lines forming when painting with a heavy-hand technique or palette knife. Each canvas is presented in a sealed poly wrapper and has the Loxley logo embossed discreetly on the back of the stretcher frame.
