Our double primed linen texture is Claessens #15 100% Belgian oil-primed linen exclusively for oil paint. It is sized with two layers of zinc white primer bound with linseed oil and one top coating of titanium white oil paint. Ideal for the artist who seeks an ultra smooth surface. The medium texture, medium weight linen is a favorite of professional artists for its irregular weave and 0% absorbency. It is suitable for portrait, landscape and modern work with brush or palette knife application.
