Product Description 30-Inch by 30-Inch Masterpiece 3D Pro 2-1/2′ Deep Artist Canvas. Pure medium weight Belgian Linen finished to a primed weight of 12 oz. per square yard. It is sized and double primed with archival quality acrylic gesso making the ground impervious to paints leaching through and harming the fabric. Suitable for most all paint types, like oils, acrylics, and alkyds. Belgian linen is very strong and has natural oils within it’s fibers which keep it flexible and help prevent disintegration over time. The surface has more of a charactertic linen surface with a slight hint of the linen weave showing through.With respect to frame construction, a celebrated feature of this product is what is called ”Canvas Relief”, which is the space between the canvas and the Stretcher Bar. There is 1/2” of relief making it virtually impossible press on the canvas and touch the stretcher bar underneath. The frame is made from solid pine or fir wood harvested from the sustainable forests of the Pacific Northwest. Finger joints are never used in Masterpiece’s wood frames. They are known to fail under pressure and over time, the glue joints break down, and are generally unsuitable for canvas frames that intended to last for centuries under continual tension. Precision machined double tongue-and-groove corners allow you to increase the canvas tension. A double wide cross brace spaning both directions is included. The Stretcher Bars are slotted in the inside perimeter of the frame to accept cross braces. Patented keyable cross braces make it possible to tension the canvas in the middle of the frame, where it’s needed the most! Both corner keys and brace keys are pre-installed.Stretched using our proprietary MuseumWrap stretching method, which means that the canvas is stretched drum-tight, up to 50% tighter than other methods, and with balanced tension across the surface of the canvas. The corners are neatly folded, uncut, and perfectly intact, thereby making it possible for the canvas to be removed and restretched on the same size frame. The edges are suitable for painting for display with or without a frame. A free inspirational art quote refrigerator magnet is included. There are over 120 to choose from! Made in North America! From the Manufacturer For 50+ years, the passion of the Masterpiece team is building the finest artist canvas in America. Â Just touch one of these impressive products and youâll immediately discern the quality characteristics that separate this canvas from any other. Masterpiece takes pride in using high quality materials, employing unparalleled workmanship, and continually upping the bar on quality. The importance of artists using a quality made canvas cannot be overstressed. Â If you use high quality paints and brushes, then donât waste your resources on an inferior canvas not worthy of your own time, talent, and reputation.Masterpiece canvases are built to last well beyond the artist’s lifetimeâ¦into the next millennium. Â Savvy art buyers and art enthusiasts understand that the value of a painting increases when the materials used to create it are of equal quality to the artwork itself. Â Using a well-made canvas is an investment in your own legacy.Why are Masterpiece canvases so good? Â It starts with the canvas itself. Â Natural fiber canvas materials, like 100% cotton and Belgian Linen, are selected and inspected. A sizing is then applied to the canvas that becomes a barrier between the ultimate primer and the canvas material. Â The primer is specifically designed to provide the ultimate surface upon which your paints will join with the canvas, either chemically and/or mechanically, providing a reliable base or ground for your art.The canvas is then mounted onto a state-of-the-art 3D Pro 2.5 frame. When frame sizes are 16â or larger, a brace is applied to the frame; for example, a 12×24 has a single brace, and a 24×24 is cross braced in both directions. The braces prevent the stretcher bar frame from bowing-in so the canvas stays tighterâ¦.which is a welcome feature when you paint on the canvas, making the surface more responsive to the artistâs touch. And the canvas stays tight after itâs painted. To increase the tension further, press-in the corner keys and the brace keys further into the slots, which adds tension in the corners and the middle of the canvas, where the tension is needed the most!3D Pro 2.5 canvas is MuseumWrapped, which is Masterpieceâs proprietary stretching technique that achieves: a drum-tight stretch, balanced tension across the canvas surface, neatly folded un-cut corners, and paintable edges. Itâs the absolute best way to stretch a canvas.When your art matters, choose 3D Pro 2.5â¦a truly professional canvas in every way!
