Linen Canvas

Linen Canvas

John Jones supply museum standard Belgian linen canvases of the highest quality in a variety of grains.  Our linen is available to purchase at 84” wide, either by the metre or on a 10 metre roll.

Linen is available un-primed, Acrylic primed, Oil primed or Pre-sized.

Grains available include coarse, medium, fine and superfine. The texture of the surface is determined by the threads per inch (thread count) and the construction of the weave. A rough canvas surface helps to pull the paint from a brush or palette knife, and is particularly useful if you use impasto techniques in your artwork. A medium-tooth canvas surface makes it easier to blend large areas. A smooth canvas surface is ideal for those who work with glazes and fine detail, and was traditionally used as artist linen for modulation of tone. For artists requiring an extremely smooth, perfect finish, we also offer Acrylic Primed Superfine Berge artist linen.
