Stretcher bars are a critical part of the canvas framing process. They come in all shapes and sizes and can be used for a variety of framing needs. You can use them for large prints or small prints, as well as every size in between. Anyone who works with canvas art, including painters as well as those who produce digital prints and photographs understands the importance of stretchers in the world of canvas art. There are many different things to think about, but here are some basic tips and things to keep in mind when it comes to using these bars.
First, the bars that you buy need to be made out of a high quality wood and have smooth edges. The wood should be so that it will not rot or warp over time, which means you should also keep them out of excessive humidity and moisture. The edges should be slightly rounded, as well, because they will provide a more delicate touch to the edges of the canvas, which are the most sensitive parts of the entire canvas to work with. When you are buying stretcher bars, you can find single bars and put them together by yourself or you can buy pre-formed pieces.
If you choose to put your own stretcher bars together, you will need to make sure that you are able to get them into a rectangular shape so that you can have the best shot at stretching the canvas properly. If you buy pre-formed stretchers, you won’t have to worry about this because they will already be put together for you. For the novice, it’s important to note that the stretchers are NOT the framing boards that go around the exterior edges of the canvas and stay on the artwork. The stretcher is what is used to put the canvas over the frame, and then is removed to be used in other works.
Stretcher bars are a great help to the process of framing canvas art and putting it up for display. Without them, people would have many canvas prints just sitting around without frames or a way to be framed. By stretching canvas properly with these bars, anyone can turn a great print into an amazing work of art with ease. Take the time to shop online for stretcher bars and you will likely find better selection and more affordable prices than you’ll find in any art store.
