Has anyone ever made up canvases for oil paintings. I need to wip together some for my daughters art classes. The frame part is easy, but what base paint do you need to add. I have doped canoe canvas but it is not really the same as it does not need to be archival quality.

I am TOTALLY without experiende in this area but I have 3 daughters; the oldes being 13 and the youngest being 7. I have "one of those feelings" that I may come upon this situation. I would think that just a plain piece of canvas stapled to a frame would fill the bill, but I sure would appreciate hearing what you finally end up working with.

This is a bit more "in depth". I think they give you some kind of Degree after reading it but in yours and Lion's case it may pay off. Good luck! Steve

I have no personal experience in this, but my sister in law is an artist and she buys the pre-made canvas' at a craft store (actually on-line for the best prices). She used to make them but she didn't think she saved enough money to make it worthwhile.

Thanks Justus. I think I will use the acrylic varnish I have in house. I am still not sure what the gesso is or where I can find it here.
Ken The premade ones here are near $20 dollars each at Wallmart only. I can make 4 for $5 of better quality. As she has only completed one painting todate, I think it is better that she just paints rather than worrying about the costs.

Peters, while I'm far from being any sort of artist, wait, does a welder count? Laughing out loud, I have had this problem myself.

My niece was wanting to try her hand at painting some of the nature & wildlife photgraphs I have taken over the years.

My solution was simple, I cut pieces of Masonite into the desired sizes, then put a coat of primer on the BACK of the sheet. The square pattern rolled into the reverse side of the sheet after a good coat of primer has been applied is almost undistinguishable from canvas, and at a very small fraction of the cost.

If the painting ends up looking like something you want to frame, merely glue a frame of 1" x 2" pine around the edge and frame as usual.

Best of luck.

I dated an artist for several years while at college. Gesso is what artists all use to prepare a canvas. It is a water base product that seals the canvas and has a somewhat rough/porous texture that all types of paints adhere to without bleeding. You should be able to find it at any store selling artist supplies or any university bookstore.

I would suggest preparing the canvas in the proper way to help the new artist in whatever way you can to encourage them. The tubes of paint are also somewhat expensive and they will need about a half dozen or more primary colors for mixing with a pallet wheel.

Maybe your artist will be famous some day.

Well I finished the first frame. I used scrap 2" x 2" fir I had around the place. Naturally the frame is a little thicker than normal, but I figured if she is learning I can learn also. It might take a few attemps to get it perfect. The first attempt is better than the Wally World variety anyway. Maybe I should post a picture of her first canvas?
