I have seen in a recent art supply catalog a new product by Arches--an Oil Painting Paper....that needs no gesso or stretching. It's coated with something that prevents the oils from damaging the paper. The best thing about it is that you can take several sheets in the field, attach them to a board and paint on them. I saw a video on Jerry's and they said it was easy to frame.
My questions are 1) has anyone used this paper...and what did you think of it? and 2) easy to frame--what does that mean? Without glass? I would think since it's a paper product that MUST be used. would you then mat the painting? I'm stumped as to how to frame such an item.
Thanks in advance!
