Stretch­ing your can­vas

ImagineFX - - Traditional Artist -

Cut your can­vas with 2-2.5 inches over­lap of the stretcher bars, then place a few sta­ples in the mid­dle of one side and stretch the op­po­site side. Move to the other sides and re­peat. Work from the mid­dles to the cor­ners.

B Work your way down each side from the cen­tre out, adding a few sta­ples on each side, then al­ter­nat­ing all four sides un­til you reach the cor­ners. C Fold the can­vas at the cor­ners un­der it­self, like wrap­ping a gift, and tack or sta­ple in place. A Start in the cen­tre of each side. Place one or two sta­ples in the mid­dle and stretch the can­vas tight.
