So it seems Jerry’s Artarama has a new, linen and cotton canvas, wood panel series up for sale. Jerry’s apparently uses 7 different types of canvas (listed below) and glues them to a wood panel… so for you artists out there who love canvas panels the gods have officially blessed you.
Some surprising aspects… The prices seem pretty good for a canvas panel. The cradle, or frame, looks very similar to the Da Vinci panels that Jerry’s sells.
Thought about making your own linen panels, but could use that valuable time painting instead of prepping? Jerry’s has heard you, and has taken the beauty and luxury of Europe’s finest Linens and Poly Cottons, and professionally mounted them on Da Vinci Pro Birch Wood Panels for your convenience! Using Lineco Neutral pH Adhesive (acid-free, museum-quality formula designed specifically for preservation materials), Jerry’s skilled craftsman hand-mount Raphael Linen, Claessens oil and universal primed linens, and Belle Arti poly cotton canvases to our own cradled birch panels. This creates flawless, museum-quality painting panels unlike anything on the market. Perfect for oils, alkyds, acrylics, egg tempera, and caseins!
