Product Questions and Answers

Can these archival watercolor canvas boards be used with oil pastels or soft pastels?

- Asked by Phyllis on 05-Apr-13

The Fredrix archival watercolor canvas has a special formulated gesso for water-based paints. This will not work well with oil paints or pastels. We suggest using a Fredrix cotton primed or linen primed canvas.

Best watercolor board I have ever used! If you buy from you can never go wrong, all of their products are fantastic!!!
Rated by: Donn K. in Live Oak, FL
My first attempt at painting watercolors on this canvas board was very good. I got some good reviews on my flickr on the painting I did. Going to have to get some more. I like the surface.
Rated by: Christi W. in Lincoln, IL
This is a nice product if you want something that does not buckle, and that you do not have to bother stretching and taping like watercolor paper. Its properties are a bit different; some techniques, like layered washes, are more difficult, while other things like color lifting are easier (re-wetting dried paint tends to make the previous layer want to lift, no matter what). On the whole I think this is a very good product for applications where using paper simply isn't feasible. I am planning to use their roll canvas like this for a large project I have coming up.

Watercolor becomes forgiving. Easy to use and fun to try.
Rated by: Kathryn M. in Hampden, MA
Colors are brighter and it does not buckle or tear. Very easy to frame without glass.
Rated by: balakrishnan a. in cary, NC
excellent surface, and you can literally wipe off work that you dont like. However, some of the edges are not as sharp as on paper, especially if you blot paint out in some areas, but with touching up the edges with darker hue, you can overcome that drawback

This canvas is a wonder. I have Parkinson's Disease and I do make mistakes. I took a "Mr. Clean Eraser" and with it damp I scrubbed my canvas and used a paper towel to remove the residue. This worked great. Canvas came clean and I can start over again. Wonderful product. Thank you for having this product on your site.

I found another reason for liking these new watercolor canvasss...Last night I looked at a piece and hated it. Becuse of the sturdy makeup of these canvasses, I rinsed the watercolors off, even scrubbing them off and am now re-working my piece...I could never do this with ordinary paper.
Rated by: Yolanda V. in Palmdale, CA
I received the new watercolor canvas boards - they allow my paint to flow better than the Stratford 300 or 400 series do because the paint does not catch on the surface, missing the tiny holes, if you will....even using acrylics,which is all I currently own, it is a good flow; I have ordered some new watercolors, which I am excited about trying....thanks!
