The perfect alternative for those wanting something just a little heavier than the middleweight, but not quite as dense and textured as our heavier linens. Natural undyed linen that is the perfect in-between weight you need for any linen projects requiring just a bit more substance.

Good oil painting support
Reviewer: Chris

IL037 6.3 oz linen provides a good support for oil painting. The weave and tooth are similar to Fredrix 10 ox Dixie cotton canvas, but with the slight irregularities that set linen apart. Lint slubs are at a minimum. The few that show through the sizing and the first coat of primer can be leveled with a little sanding before putting on another coat. Of the 3 linens I've tried: 4C22 was way too slubby. Couldn't use. IL037 6.3 oz is just right for landscape work IL019 5.3 oz is tighter weave, best for portraiture I glue the linen to hardboard and have not tried stretching it. My process is: 1. Cut linen to 1" wider than hardboard 2. Scuff hardboard with 150 grit sandpaper 3. Adhere linen to board with Liquitex gloss medium 4. Coat front of linen with thin layer of medium 5. After dry, lightly sand to remove slubs and whiskers 6. Coat with Liquitex professional gesso 7. After dry, coat with Winsor and Newton oil primer

Here is one of my landscape paintings.
