This Masterpiece Vincent Acrylic Primed Canvas Sierra 12x16 is a superb painting surface! This canvas is given a third primer coat which provides the canvas surface with more body and substance, therefore making it harder for oils to leach through to the canvas over time. The smoother surface of this canvas allows paints to be applied effortlessly. This canvas is perfect for aggressive painting techniques like impasto and heavy paint applications. The canvas is the preferred choice for artists who prefer tough and durable canvases with a delicate tooth. This canvas is stretched on 7/8” bars and has hand folded corners for easy removal and re-stretching.
