Oil and Acrylic Canvas stretching and framing
Your artwork is in the best of hands. Art Stretching is an art itself to ensure that it remains tight over many years. Professionally done and ready to hang.
Stretching is an essential process for the presentation of your artworks on canvas and is also important for its longevity. The canvas can sustain damage or cracking from being rolled up in a tube for extended period of time.
We specialise in hand made quality stretching giving you a high-quality finish. We also use backing to seal and protect the rear of your art canvas stretcher or canvas image.
Depending on your image to be stretched and the look that you are trying to achieve, one option is to wrap the image onto the sides of the stretcher frame. Option 2 is to wrap the image as per option 1 and then install a floating frame.We have in store many beautiful options for floating frames with the latest trends being offered.
The Floating frame was originally designed to protect the artwork. Thanks to its tall profile, it offers protection to the canvas. Nowadays it is a complementing, and contemporary framing option for canvas which reveals a discreet shadow of the sides.
Most artworks done on canvas such as Aboriginal artworks are painted with Acrylic paint, which is very durable, so glass cover is unnecessary. The wonderful glossy finish will be best appreciated without the distraction of the glass.
Some artists prefer to stretch the canvas themselves and we can help you, too. We sell quality artist canvas by the meter. It is available in our store, 22 Martyn Street from 830 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday or 830 am to 12 pm on Saturday. If you’re a budding artist just starting out and want a less expensive option than stretched canvas, or you are so prolific you simply want a more durable option, then we supply canvas applied to board for artists to paint on.
