Raphael Professional Oil Primed Stretched Linen Canvas

A Modern Quality Oil Primed Support Created in Italy

Raphael Professional Oil Primed Stretched Linen Canvas is painstakingly created, starting with Old World traditional rabbit skin glue sealer applied to washed, dried, picked and pumiced finely woven linen. Once dry, two coats of professional acrylic gesso is applied, giving an extremely tight stretched surface that will prevent sagging. Lastly, two coats of rich oil primer are applied, creating a beautifully receptive surface for oil painting.

6 priming coats using 2 glue & 4 oil primer, the non-absorbent oil priming allows applied oil color to sit cleanly on the surface, instead of sinking in as occurs with universal/acrylic priming. The special formulation creates depth and beauty with the refractive qualities of the rich oil priming, enhancing the natural tendencies of the oil pigments, giving them a jewel-like sparkle and pop. The slight tooth grabs the initial oil layers, creating the perfect chemical bond for your painting foundation. Instead of the drag and pull of universal acrylic or lower quality oil priming, this professional surface creates uninterrupted, smooth transitions with each brush stroke.

Key Features:
  • Robust 13oz./441gsm primed weight
  • 1-3/8" deep profile
  • Back stapled, 4 paintable edges
  • Strong, warp-resistant Fir Stretchers
  • Fine weave, 100% linen
  • Smooth oil primed surface
  • 4 coats of professional priming

  • Depth and jewel-like platform for oils
  • Re-stretching

The entire process is done in Italy entirely by hand, but on a super clean and efficient modern assembly line, allowing the resulting primed linen to be unequaled in smoothness and consistency. The primed surface feels almost buttery to the touch, with an underlying linen that is smooth and incredibly uniform. This 13oz./441gsm weight allows for super strong support on any sized canvas, yet provides the master-quality foundation for superb portraiture and fine detail work.

Stretched Raphael Linen is attached at the back, leaving a beautiful clean painting edge for frameless or floating presentation if desired. Generous canvas is allowed on the back before trimming, to allow for re-stretching of the linen if ever necessary. A professional quality stretched canvas deserves the best quality stretchers available, and Raphael’s creation demanded the most slow growing, even grained Fir stretchers.

Considered the strongest and most warp-resistant wood for stretchers, Fir is free of knots, deformities, and grain inconsistencies that plaque even the most quality Pine stretchers. Raphael uses sustainably harvested Fir for strength and tightness, with stretchers measuring 1.1” x 1.3”. A pronounced, uniform bead along the stretcher edge allows for a firm yet reliable give when painting, but will not allow for ghosting of the fabric. Sizes over 24x24” have cross bar reinforcements.
