Art Tip #2 - Stretch Canvas

Anyone can easily buy a pre-stretched and primed canvas but is it really great quality? Most pre-stretched canvases are stretched with very thin material. Making it easier for the painting to rip. That affordable price tag sounds great, we know but stretching your own canvas allows you the ability to choose the quality of canvas you use. Its puts you in control to decide if you want your work to withstand the test of time or till your money clears after you finished that commission. Knowing the value of stretching your own canvas is priceless.

You can buy all the materials you need to stretch your own canvas at your favorite local art store.
