Uniquely textured, drum-tight linen canvases from Eastern Europe!
Odessa Professional Stretched Linen Canvas is a completely new concept for artists used to working on standard Western-style canvases! Imported from the Ukraine, Odessa Medium Extra Fine Linen Canvas features a beautiful, non-uniform weave that allows the texture of the canvas to make a statement in your painting. Made from only the highest quality flax fibers, this linen is not pumiced after it is woven, allowing the natural, organic look of the weave to remain. Before priming, the rough canvas is stretched and back-stapled onto solid pine stretcher bars, then taped off and primed with either oil or acrylic primer. As the primer dries, it continues to stretch the canvas, and the end result is an amazingly drum-tight surface that can stand up to the heaviest paint application and strongest strokes. With these beautiful, natural-finish canvases, your surface will be as unique as your art!
