Heavyweight 🔩

Heavy Art Grounds

Thicker artwork supports that are heavier in weight, and usually more rigid than the lightweight art grounds. My main types of  heavyweight art foundations:

  • Cotton rugs and other papers: 300 g/m (140 lb), sometimes heavier;
  • Canvases: heavy cotton ducks with more pronounced texture, usually with tight plied yarn weave of denser and stronger construction, from 12 oz per square yard (36" x 36 ") to 30 oz.
