Claessens C15SP: A medium texture, irregular weave linen with a single layer of oil priming. The priming is slightly slick with minimal to no absorbency that allows for greater paint manipulation. Excellent tooth and texture for landscapes.
Claessens 15DP:The same medium texture and linen weave as C15SP but with two layers of oil priming for a slightly smoother surface. Suitable for all painting styles from landscapes to portraits.
Artfix L21C: A strong, all purpose linen that is hand primed in Provence, France with one coat of Artfix proprietary “lead-like” oil primer for the qualities of lead minus toxicity. It has a unique absorbency that allows paint to “bite” into the surface for extraordinary depth of color.
