About Blank Canvas

Whether you use it to describe an unwritten work of fiction or an inexperienced political candidate, the term "blank canvas" implies a fresh start. For creative types, the word has a literal as well as a metaphorical meaning. A stretched blank canvas offers the foundation for a potential masterpiece. Whether it is stretched across panels or kiln-dried wood frames, many canvases feature 100 percent cotton duck fabric primed with a double layer of acrylic gesso for use with oil or acrylic paints. Artists looking for an affordable blank canvas on eBay can find a wide array in many sizes ranging from just a few inches to a few feet. Also available are a full rainbow of watercolors, oils, and acrylic paints, as well as a multitude of brushes for hours of painting pleasure. Crafting enthusiasts may be on the hunt for blank needlepoint canvases in all shapes and sizes with varying degrees of mesh for the creation of pillows, rugs, wall hangings, and more. Although some prefer pre-cut pieces, others lean toward rolls of canvas that they can cut themselves. With so many options available, the only limit to any creative endeavor is the imagination.
