Lightweight

Lightweight Art Grounds

  • Cotton rags and papers: less than 300 g/m (140 lb. ) - thin and medium-sturdy papers and fibrous support substances that are less sturdy than the heavyweight art grounds.
  • Canvases: light cotton ducks with finer texture, under 12 oz. per square yard, or other natural and synthetic textiles hat are used as an artwork support: linen (flax), recycled natural blends, synthetic fibers like repurposed polyester, pellon, nylon, etc.

Usually lightweight artworks need to be mounted or framed for a presentation or hanging on a wall.
