Canvasette Paper Canvas

by Bienfang

Canvasette paper canvas is an economical alternative to canvas. The 170 lb. heavy weight paper is suitable for mounting, and its rough surface texture effectively holds pigment and enhances the creative process.

The paper has a matte, pre-primed finish that’s easy on the eyes and enhances performance. It’s excellent for painting with oils and acrylics and good for mixed media.

Pads come with 10 sheets.

This paper is great for my painting with acrylics. Good texture, and it doesn't need to be primed. Good price so I can let my 11-year-old experiment.

Product Questions and Answers

What is this paper primed with?

- Asked by Harry Neely on 22-Sep-13

The Canvasette Paper Canvas is acrylic-primed.

- Answered by MisterArt on 24-Sep-13

Should art on canvasette paper canvas go behind glass?

- Asked by Mr Aaron Pilgrim on 13-Jun-13

It depends on which kind of art you're talking about. Lithograph prints and watercolors should be displayed behind glass while oil paintings need to "breath" from both the front and back, and just need to be varnished for protection. Acrylic paintings might get too much heat and humidity behind glass, so it's better to not have glass.

I am a retired teacher and just begun painting as a hobby. I have used all kind of art paper as a teacher, but this is really great. I am just a beginner with this, but I am enjoying using this canvas paper to learn the art of painting. Thank you for this product. I can't find any around our area.

Gesso should have been my middle name but, since I got the Canvasette I can experiment all I want and not have to redo a canvas. Great for everything! Thanks!

I bought this for an artist friend who absolutely loves it. Excellent value for the money.
Rated by: Mary S. in Port Austin, MI
About 35 years ago I used this canvas, and now after all these years I have finally found it again. I love it. It can be cut to any size and is wonderful to paint on regardless of whether it is acrylic or oils. Very economical. Thank you so much

This is the most flexible product I've ever used. I can use it with all the media's I switch to, and it cuts up very well for special products!
Rated by: Kelly C. in Shiloh, NC
I love this product. The texture and weight of the canvasette is perfect for acrylic painting, yet it is thin enough that it can be easily matted and framed. Highly recommend...
