A blank canvas symbolises the beginning of a creative journey. At The PaintBox we sell canvas made from linen, cotton and jute. Jute is made from vegetable fibre and when woven to make canvas create a coarse weave that is well suited to rich, impasto applications of colour. Cotton and linen tend to have a more subtle weave and is a perfect support for a wide variety of paint, anything from splashes of watercolour-like ink to sculptural and buttery oil. Cotton is made with shorter fibres which means the fabric tends to be less tough than linen but still possesses a degree of elasticity so that it can be stretched. Linen is more elastic and is available in a variety of weaves. The choice available will suit painting ideas of every kind, we also hand-make custom canvases to order in all dimensions and weaves.

Find the surface best suited to your technique or aesthetic. Consider if the weave of canvas, the grain of a wooden panel or the smoothness of paper is right for your practice, what level of absorbency you need and if you need your substrate to be rigid. Whatever qualities you need we have the information to help you decide what is the right surface for your practice.
