Any fine artist knows that a print is not complete without the right canvas stretcher bar. This is the component that stretches out the art work and holds everything in a flat display. As times change, more styles of stretcher bars become available, and choosing the right one for your project may seem a bit confusing. Here we will look at some of the different aspects you might assess so that you get the canvas frames that is just right for your project. Your piece of art is only a pull away from perfectionn.
One of the first things to consider is what size of canvas frame you will be needing. That will obviously be determined by the kind of print you will be making. For the most part, the canvas stretcher bars start at 8 inches and increase by two inches all the way up to 72. All stretcher bars are designed to be interchangeable, so you can have an 8 inch length and a 60 inch height if need be. The pieces interlock very easily to create a 90 degree angle. You can make any square or rectangle you desire as long as you purchase the bars in sets of two or more.
You might also want to consider the kind of wood that your canvas stretcher frames will be made of. Pine is the most common wood on the market, but you will likely get more success from Fir. For one, Fir is not as likely to warp, thereby ensuring greater security for the canvas you have stretched over the stretcher bars. Fir is also lighter than Pine, making it easier to hang on the wall. Although it is lighter, Fir is still just as strong as Pine is. Finding a product that has been heated to reduce moisture will also be beneficial in reducing wood warping.
Overall, most canvas stretcher frames and bars come in some sort of bulk order. That means that you will buy them in sets of 30, rather than sets of two or four. This is not always the case, but in the end it is better to buy that way because you will save money. If you have a large project going on, the better rate you can get in bulk, the better off you will be. Once you get your canvas stretchers bats, it’s just a matter of putting them together for display.
