Clairefontaine Canvas Boards are 3mm/4mm thick boards covered with 100% cotton canvas 200gsm. These boards have a universal primer making them ready to paint with oil, acrylic or gouache.
Clairefontaine Canvas Boards are lighter than stretched canvases and more resistant than paper for oil techniques. Clairefontaine Canvas Boards are acid-free.
N.B. all boards are 3mm thick apart from the 3 largest sizes (12331/2/3), which are 4mm thick.
Price per board.
I find it too fine but yet rough (looks like it's been sanded to much - there was even a hole in the canvas which I didn't see at first) & the primer is too absorbent.
I hope they return to their previous standard - I hope it's just a glitch. At the moment the landscape formats seem unchanged and hope it remains so!
However on the downside recently, there does seem to be some inconsistency with the surface of the portrait sizes & landscape sizes when previously they were the same.
The last few batches of portrait sizes have been finer and too absorbent.
So I hope that the landscape surface doesn't change and please return the portrait surface back to it's previous state.
