Linen + Surfaces

We love linen! We always have at least 5 different kinds of linen in stock, direct from Belgium. We also carry gorgeous universal pre-prime linen.

We also have #12, #10 and army duck canvas in stock.

We specialize in custom surfaces. We offer white black or clear acrylic gesso, PVA, Rabbit Skin Glue, traditional gesso, chalk emulsion ground, etc. We can also tint your gesso, rsg or pva.

Our absolute fave right now for oil painters is traditional chalk emulsion ground, which is able to be used on a non-rigid substrate – positively luminous!

Here you can see Josh applying pva to linen the proper way – front and back on a separate frame. Once it’s dry, it can be stretched on it’s “forever frame.”
