View Full Version : Mounting on brick

A lurker on this forum hoping to contribute work this week.

Just wondering if anyone can offer advice on how to mount a stretched canvas on a brick wall? I'm having an informal exhibition (my first) this week and I have no idea how to mount these.

Drill some pilot holes into the morter between the bricks. Make sure they're both level of course. Then insert some of those plastic anchors into your pilot holes. Then you're free to insert your screws into the plastic anchors and hang yer werk on them.:)

I just nailed a 10' canvas to the wall last time I had a show on a brick wall. nails drive fairly easy into the mortar.

Those squared off Cement nails work too. Just depends on how particular the people are about their brick wall.:D
