Art Spectrum® offers the most comprehensive range of canvas textures and stretchers (miniatures to mural size). We believe it is important for artists to paint on properly prepared, quality stretched canvas. Not only is it more pleasant to paint on, but the archival characteristics are far superior to canvas panels and the like. Art Spectrum® stretchers are the basis from which painting begins.
Art Spectrum® provides a timber for our Professional Hoop Pine Stretchers that is sourced and grown on Queensland plantations and it is known for its uniformity and is knot-free. Furniture grade finger jointing and a careful and slow kiln-drying process prevents warping of the stretcher bars.
Open-ended mortice and tenon corners make squaring up easy to achieve and maintain – all done in Melbourne.
