A stretched canvas is only as good as the stretcher bar that is usedr. With BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bars, you will have a smoother and tighter canvas.
Made of white pine that has been expertly kiln dried, the BEST Medium-Duty Stretcher Bar - 44" is designed so that the canvas is always a 1/2" away from it. This design helps to prevent ghost impressions. Friction on the surface of the canvas is reduced because of its rounded back. This, in turn, allows for a smoother canvas so the artist can create a more even painting. Due to the slotted back, it is easy to fit this bar with the necessary cross braces. This stretcher bar measures 1 1/4 inches deep and 1 1/2 inches wide.
