Elite is one of the strongest, highest quality, professional grade pre-stretched canvases available. When stretched the Elite stretcher bar measures 2.5cm - 1.3cm deep and is a full 5.1cm - 0.6cm wide for maximum strength. The unique patented groove on the inner perimeter makes the corners and braces all keyable. Stretched with Heavy Weight Belgian Oil Primed Linen. Recognised as the finest hand primed linen on the market, resulting in an even hand and traditional texture to hold your paint and make brushwork a dream. The heavy weight linen is 4X primed with 2 coats of high-grade oil primer and 2 archival sizing coats. Perfect for heavy paint applications and impasto. Folded corners and sufficient selvage facilitate restretching on the same size frame. Elite offers security as well, with a unique code on the canvas that can be entered at the Fine Art Registry. Registration allows the artist to prove provenance of the artwork, no matter where it goes. Museum Quality. For Oils Only.
