72x6Yards unprimed cotton canvas
This is a lot of canvas for the money if you frame and mount your own work. Another very strong point is this canvas is 12 oz material and exceptionally heavy and strong for large work. The commercially made gallery mounts are made from much thinner canvas (about 6 0r 7 oz) and the frames are also not very strong.
This 12 oz cotton canvas primes beautifully and can be stretched very taut - which is precisely why you need at least a 12 oz weight canvas for large work which need to be pulled very taut. If you learn to make your own frames (I uses 2 x 3s), you can make many very large, much higher quality painting canvases from this 72x 8 yards of material, and all at less than 20% of the price of pre-made gallery mounts. Gesso is cheap, and priming your own canvas also saves you huge bucks.
