Product Review: 6"x6" Stretched Canvas (6 Pack) by US Art Supply

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
This 6 pack of 6"x6" Stretched Canvases by US Art Supply can be used with oil, acrylic, and other painting media. They contain a 3/4 inch profile and kiln-dried stretcher bars, are hand stretched, and are stapled in the back, which gives them staple-free edges. They are triple primed with acrylic gesso which is acid-free.
These canvases were easy to paint on with acrylic paint. I used more than one coat, usually two or three in some places on the canvas. I usually draw what I'm going to paint and fill in the drawing with paint later. When I did it this way some of the black from the pencil bled into the lighter paint colors (I do not think that is a problem with this canvas though). Next time I will probably try to go lighter on the pencil to try to prevent that. The darker paint color I used looked more rich when I painted in comparison to the lighter color of paint. When I needed to erase pencil marks with a drawing eraser this canvas did a great job of allowing them to be erased, barely showing any indication that the pencil marks were there.

In my opinion, these 6"x6" Stretched Canvases are great for painting individual pictures of objects. They would be great to use as a starting point for beginning artists as well as teaching students about detail in paintings through a smaller-sized canvas area.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars
