Post How to make your own Canvas?

Hello, I'm looking for the best way to make your own canvas including how to make the stretcher bars while also still being cheap. Please include the names of the materials needed and where you can find them, thank you

Re: How to make your own Canvas?

Would be better to study how to make panels.
Restoration would love you.
Heat -Bodied Oil is the vehicle of all Hand Mulled Paint . A very little Stand Oil is needed as medium or to oil out .
Medium is used only in the last coat/s if needed at all.
In the good company of Old and New Masters.

It's cheaper to buy ready made. Why bother, unless you want different sizes or formats?
Critiques and comments are always welcome.
