Unprimed #12 Cotton makes it possible to control every aspect of the canvas surface before applying the color. Prepare your own surface, or use bare expanses of raw canvas as part of the painting itself. Monetï Unprimed is ideal for Soaking and Staining techniques. Pouring thinned paints onto raw canvas allows the threads to soak up the paint, resulting in a fluid and spontaneous convergence of the image and the fabric not possible with prepared canvases. Monet unprimed canvases feature Heavy Duty Stretcher Bars.
