Artfix Linen has been handcrafted for over 30 years by the Narozni family in Provence, France. The climate is dry and warm ideal for the slow and even drying of primed canvas surfaces. Artfix Linen features unsurpassed archival characteristics. each canvas is guaranteed not to peel, crack or flake, and will not fluctuate or lose inner dimensional stability due to changes in humidity and temperature.
Artfix linen is double sized to completely protect the material from the adverse effects of oil primers and oil paints. Up to 6 layers of ground is then applied for an utterly flawless support surface.
This linen is a strong, tightly woven fabric suitable for all techniques. The primer is a "Lead Style" Oil Primer which provides the qualities and characteristics of traditional lead-based ground without its toxicity. "Lead Style's" unique absorbency allows oil paint pigment to sink into the surface of the canvas, increasing the dimensionality and depth of the painting and providing a "glow" that radiates from within the painting when over-painted with thin glazes.
