Is linen canvas better than cotton?
Both linen and cotton canvases are great for all kinds of art work. However, linen is stronger, thick and more durable than cotton, so it may be a better choice for professional artists.
Linen canvas can also have an imperfect weave that adds texture to the painting, and is harder to stretch if you buy it on the roll.
What is the advantage of linen canvas?
As linen is made from the fibres of the flax plant, it is more durable than a cotton canvas. It can also retain its natural oils, which keeps the surface from becoming brittle and cracking.
What kind of paint do you use on linen canvas?
You can use any type of artist paint on a linen stretched canvas when primed correctly, but for the best results, use acrylic paint or oil paint.
