Canvas stretching, what is it exactly?
Often art is painted or printed onto a canvas, and to display it in a professional manner, it is commonly stretched. This process involves stretching the canvas over a timber frame using stretcher bars. It is wrapped and secured around the frame tightly to produce a piece of art.
A reputable framer will only use the very best equipment and materials to conduct their canvas stretching services. They ensure that the canvas isn’t pulled too tight or loose and will ensure that all edges are neatly secured to the framing to produce a professional and long-lasting product.
Canvas stretching requires a certain level of skill, and it can be quite difficult to produce a flawless finish if you are an amateur.
Why choose canvas stretching for your canvas Brisbane?
Canvas stretching effectively preserves the canvas and prevents it from avoidable damage. The longer you leave your canvas unstretched, the more susceptible it will be to deterioration from external contaminants such as dirt, mould, as well as crease and paint damage from being rolled or folded for too long. From an aesthetic perspective, it can enhance the look of your artwork tenfold. It enables you to create a unique piece of art that is easy to move and display. You can choose the size that your canvas is, and you can add a floating frame if you choose to give your stretched canvas a high-end look. There are many options available, and these will be discussed with you when in the planning phase of your canvas stretching service.
What types of art can be put on canvas?
It’s not only original artwork that can be applied to canvases, here are some other ways canvases can be used to produce art:
- Printed art. This is generally a copy of an original piece of art. Many choose this over original art as it is much more affordable.
- Photographs can be printed onto canvas and displayed in your home.
- Text and graphics can be printed on canvas.
How do you hang stretched canvas artwork on a wall?
At Mobile Frames 2U, we take immense pride in the standard of our work, and you can be assured that your stretched canvas will be presented in the absolute highest manner allowing your art to take centre stage in your home or business. A question we get asked often is, “how are stretched canvases hung?”
When stretching your canvas, we add premium fittings to the back of your frame. This enables you to hang your art on the wall using your preferred hanging fixing. You can add a permanent fixing such as a picture hook that is screwed into the wall, or you can buy adhesive picture hooks. It’s important that you check the weight-bearing capabilities of the hook before attempting to hang your stretched canvas. They can be quite heavy, and your hook needs to be able to withhold such weight otherwise it may fall and cause damage to your canvas.
Canvas stretching choices Brisbane
