What You Need to Create Your Canvas
Thinking about designing your own unique canvases for painting and mixed media projects? You have plenty of options to find the perfect base for your work:
When you’re shopping for Nashville art supplies and can’t find the right canvas, building your own allows you the freedom to specify the exact size and shape you need. We can build a custom canvas in any dimension up to 10 feet long and 30 feet wide. Just tell us down to the exact inch what you need, and we’ll take it from there.
Though we call them canvases, fabric foundations vary. Each material has its own unique features and takes paint a different way. Some soak up moisture thirstily, some are rough, and others are tightly woven and ultra-smooth. The material you select will determine how your final product looks, as well as how your paints and brushes feel in your hand as you work. It’s all personal preference, which is why we have so many options:
The hidden framework of your canvas depends entirely on the quality of stretcher bars you select, and we have many to choose from. Even though they’re never seen by the public, knowing you have sturdy, well-built stretcher bars under your painting allows you to create with confidence. We offer the following choices in both lightweight and heavy-duty varieties:
