Re: Wet Panel Transporter

Have you guys tried either of these two wet canvas carriers? They both look as if they will touch the front of the canvas, I could be wrong though.

I want to have "something", be it another canvas or foamcore, protecting the wet one, like in Wayne's example.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

Jim, I have the second one that you show in your post. It works okay except for the fact that it punches holes in your painting. Also, it doesn't work for canvas panels, only stretched canvases. The screws don't go down far enough to grip the panels.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

Hi Jamie, I've got quite a few stretched canvases to go through first. I think the cheap frame route (even just one frame with a sheet of foamcore or heavy card on the other side) would be great for panels.

The top picture looks interesting, as it would be useful for different sizes too. I can't figure out if the "latch" would touch the wet side of the canvas though.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

James .. for one canvas you do the same .. get one cheap frame.

Then glue a piece or birch or other very light wood to the front of the frame. Heck you could use a piece of hard plastic or foam board .. anything that will seal the front of the frame.

You then slip your wet canvas into the frame and you carry it via the wire on the back of the stretched canvas. That way nothing can touch the front (wet canvas) and you could even hang in on your back as long as the board was against your back.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

Wayne, I understand that, but I have quite a few different sizes, so a flexible approach would be nice. The top one here looks interesting.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

I have resorted nearly to the Pizza boxes thing like llis.....but, for my 12" x 16"s and 6" x 9"s...I purchased metal ammo boxes with the rubber seal in the top lid with heavy duty clamps. Got them at the Army Navy surplus stores.

I took pine boards, routed grooves and glued them with an industry drywall adhesive to the inside of the box.

Advantage for me is... I often travel down very dusty roads in the northwoods, sometimes requiring 4whl drive and dust finds its way into the back cab of my truck. Totally sealed keeps dust out, keeps oil smells in.

I store ready to go gessoed panels as well as those finished.

Another plus is setting the larger box near you when you paint.

How many people want to stop and bother a guy with a large sheathed Deer hunting knife strapped to the waste and a military ammo box nearby? hahaha

You scare me Larry! Ha. So much for the limp wristed, noodle-arm artist.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

Larry, between you and your knife and ammo box, and Nancy's pepper spray that could drop a bear.....I want to go paint with you two!

Wayne, your comment about using just a single frame and sealing up the other side with matboard made me realize that this would be the ideal solution for a 16X20, where it's highly unlikely that I'd complete more than one painting in a day.

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

Wouldn't the lip of the frames interfere with the wet perimeter of the paintings? Also, what are people using to keep the paintings secure inside the frames?

This sounds like a great, inexpensive lightweight alternative, if I can get it to work!

Why not transport two 16x20's? If you only use one, the other will be in place for protection, and you will have it handy for next time. If you have time to paint two . . . well, there you go!



Great idea . . .

Re: Wet Panel Transporter

I wish I saw this thread last year before I made a couple of heavy wooden boxes that hold 8 panels! They're virtually useless. This is a great idea.
