    Pretty cool, I have never used a system, just hand stretching a canvas onto stretcher bars. What did you coat the canvas with?

    Hi Landon,

    I don’t have anything to coat the canvas with yet. I wanted the Hahnemuhle protective spray, but I can’t get it in Japan. I currently have a query in with your friends at Breathing Color and might be buying some of their Lyve canvas and Timeless coating. I’ll switch to their system too if they shipping costs are reasonable.

    I like the Hahnemuhle Daguerre paper, but not being able to get the protective spray and them not having 24″ rolls of this canvas in stock at B&H makes it difficult to stay with them. I know you like Breathing Color too, and that’s a good enough recommendation for me. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Martin.

    Gotcha Martin, I was curious. My first canvas cracked along the edges of the gallery wrap even with protective sprays. Once I switched to the Breathing Color canvas and Glamour II coating system, it was no longer a problem. The canvas, ink and coating became one and no more issues at all.

    Let us know how you get along with the options at hand.

    I have been interested in doing gallery wraps but have been a little leery but you have made it look easy…which is impressive considering this was only your second attempt….thanks for this.
