Is a thick or thin canvas better?
Whether a double thick canvas or thin canvas is better ultimately depends on the artwork you plan on creating.
Double thick frames can take heavy textural build ups or heavy pours, with less sagging than other lightweight canvases. Larger sizes are also braced to remain stable and provide a rigid support for your paintings. Due to the thickness of the frame there is no need for framing, just hang on the wall!
Single thick frames, on the other hand, are lightweight canvases that are suitable for light applications of paint. They can also be more affordable than double thick canvases.
What are the different types of canvas?
When you opt for canvas as your art medium, you have plenty of types to choose from! They include:
Canvas panels and board
What is canvas thickness?
