The use of cotton instead of Linen provides a truer character for this special canvas making process. El Greco has a more generous surface allowing colors to really move into the priming for dramatic images with all thinned and water-based media. Use it to create watercolor effects with acrylics, paint "fresco" style with egg tempera or traditional opaque watercolors and for applying a wide variation of mixed media applications with chalks, charcoal, pastels, decorative papers and whatever else you can imagine.
Made with 3 hand applied coats of a special family recipe of gesso priming to provide a softer feel, more absorbent surface and incredible, natural beautiful surface. Created on beefy, strong, tight weave cotton it is like no other canvas we have ever seen. We think you'll agree after you put it to your test that it is an exciting canvas to work with either as a change of pace or as your day in and day out surface.
