What is an unprimed canvas? An unprimed canvas roll refers to a roll of canvas fabric that hasn't been treated with primer or gesso. Artists appreciate its untreated nature as it lacks the primer or gesso layer giving it an absorbent surface compared to primed canvas. Many artists opt for canvas rolls because they offer flexibility in preparing the surface. Some artists like to add their primer or gesso layers to personalize the surface texture, absorbency and color before painting.

What is a clear primed canvas? This kind of canvas has a primer. Gesso or primer layer that is transparent or almost see through. It keeps the natural color and texture of the canvas fabric while offering an sealed and stable surface for painting. It is usually clear acrylic primed and will take acrylic paints, oil colors, caseins, alkyds, egg tempera, and pastels.
