Traditional support for paintings since the 16th century, cloth made from linen, cotton, hemp or silk.
A commonly used support for oil and acrylic paintings. Artist's canvas is a woven fabric made of linen, cotton, hemp or other fibers. Its surface is typically prepared for painting by priming with a ground. This protects the fibers and prevents the absorption of oils from the paint. Linen, produced from flax fibers was first used for artist's canvas. Later, alternatives to linen became popular, such as cotton and hemp. For use as a painting support, canvas is usually stretched over a stretcher, a wooden frame specially made for stretching artist's canvas, and then tacked or stapled. Since canvases constructed in this way, paintings are susceptible to tears or punctures. For this reason, many artists choose to mount the canvas to a rigid panel, made of either hardwood or some composite material. This way the artist has both the textural qualities of the canvas in his painting and the strength and safety of a rigid panel.
Canvas is durable and attractive. It is probably the most popular fabric used in handbags. It is a heavy to light fabric with tight smooth weave.

Commonly used as a support for oil or acrylic painting, canvas is a heavy woven fabric made of flax or cotton. Its surface is typically prepared for painting by priming with a ground. Linen, made of flax, is the standard canvas, very strong, sold by the roll and by smaller pieces. An alternative to linen is heavy cotton duck, though it is debated as less acceptable by traditionalists (some find it unacceptable), cotton being less durable, because it's more prone to absorb dampness, and it's less receptive to grounds and size. For use in painting, a piece of canvas is stretched tightly by stapling or tacking it to a stretcher frame. A painting done on canvas and then cemented to a wall or panel is called marouflage.
