Canvas Stretching......

I recently had a customer bring in a rather large canvas which was bought whilst on holiday, transported home rolled up and now required stretching, so it could be hung in her home.

As the canvas was over six foot in length, I commissioned special stretcher bars to be made, which would provide enough support for such a large size canvas. The stretchers included two support bars to ensure the correct support when the canvas was pulled taut.

The canvas had a beautiful gold leaf finish and was a very striking image of a Buddha's head. Quite a statement piece!!

I completed the stretching of the canvas and the customer had to transport the finished item home by van, but seemed very pleased with the end result!

So what will you bring back from your holidays?
