Canvas Stretching Perth

Canvas Stretching Perth

Famous Picture Framing: offer professional canvas stretching in Perth to enhance your original art or prints on canvas. We have extensive experience with all canvas types and styles including Aboriginal, Balinese & African art. We will initially assess the artwork’s suitability for canvas stretching; for example, there may be a possibility of cracking if the canvas has not been primed properly before being painted, which could potentially ruin the artwork if stretched. From here, our team will select the appropriately sized canvas stretcher bars to properly preserve your canvas art.

Oversize canvas art is an area we specialize in. Oversized canvas requires special care and expertise, ensuring these artworks are correctly supported and stretched correctly. Other picture framers often refer clients to us for oversized canvas stretching.

Canvas art that has been painted right to the edge of the canvas without any borders is also suitable for stretching, as Framous Picture Framing uses conservation materials to allow the canvas artwork to be stretched without compromising the image. The canvas stretcher bars we use are solid meranti or cedar and not susceptible to drying out or warping (preventing the need for re-stretching in the future). Our naturally insect-resistant stretcher bars protect your artwork from dust mites and other insects.

For extra protection Framous Picture Framing: can protect the backing of the canvas using a polyethylene backing material that will protect against:

  • Dust accumulation and subsequent damage from dust mites and other insects,
  • Water damage from damp environments
  • Vibration during transportation may cause cracking of the paint.

Canvas Framing Perth

You may like to consider canvas framing to the border of the stretched canvas to add style and substance to the image. Whether it is the minimalist “Float” canvas frame or something more traditional or substantial, a framed canvas looks more “finished” compared to a stretched canvas. The Framous Picture Framing: team in Perth will show you some ideas from our thousands of canvas framing options.

At Framous Picture Framing, your artwork is in experienced hands and will be stretched with due care and attention to its particular requirements. We finish our canvas works with our exclusive hangers, which enable your canvas to sit flush and straight on the wall. If security is an issue, we can provide security fittings to your canvas framing, which enable your canvas to be locked onto the wall.
