Acid-free, acrylic-primed cotton duck is suitable for oil and acrylic painting. Primed canvas is ready-to-use; paint on the white side. It will save you money on paint. Acrylic painters may paint on unprimed canvas for stain-like, watercolour effects but be aware that much of your pricey colours will be absorbed into the canvas. A primer will seal the canvas and your colour will stay on the surface looking bright and beautiful.
Our canvas is double-primed with artist gesso which is superior to latex primer for three reasons.
