Handstretched wooden frames
For the hand-stretched wooden frames you can choose from the following fabrics. Of course, we are happy to support you with your ideas and projects:
- Cotton, linen or jute,
- coarse, medium fine or fine,
- unprimed or primed.
You decide for yourself which profile you need for your canvas and which fabric you would like it covered with. We glue and prime the screens at any time for you on request.
The sizing takes place in our own workshop with liquid rabbit-skin glue, on request also with Plextol.
To glue your canvases, we heat the glue and apply it to the fabric. The glue acts as a natural collagen and gives the tissue on your canvas the desired tension.
We apply the white primer of your canvases to you in 3 different versions with finished products such as those from Lascaux:
- Gesso Universal (strongly absorbent),
- Primer (weakly absorbent), works well for oil painting,
- Chalk base (more absorbent), smooth surface.
The foundation is applied to the fabric in several thin layers, usually 2-3 times. We recommend our customers first and foremost Gesso Universal, because we have the best experience with it.
