How to stretch a canvas with Renowned American Artist Michael Bell. Step by step, learn how to stretch a perfect canvas every time, how to tone the canvas, and incorporate text, mixed-media and paper in a work of art on canvas.
Watch a work from start to finish...
*note - on thicker frames I recommend stapling to the back of the canvas stretcher strips and doing a "gallery wrap", not stapling the sides. In this video, economical thin stretcher frames were used, so the frames were stapled to the sides and these canvases would be later framed with strips of lattice.
