December 4: RayMar Belgian Linen Panels
The RayMar Portrait Panel is museum quality painting panel made with Claessens' finest weave #13 double oil primed Belgian linen exclusively for oil paint. It is the choice of professional artists for portrait and figure work.
Claessens' #13 linen is woven to exacting standards with 57.9 TPI warp and 58.4 TPI weft at 10.47 ounces per square yard. The priming consists of a double layer of synthetic glue, which is less sensitive to humidity than hide glue. It is sized with two layers of zinc white primer bound with linseed oil and one top coating of titanium white oil paint. With 4 layers of priming and a finish coat the result is museum quality linen without equal.
The linen is then mounted on 1/8 inch MDF with a pH neutral adhesive through RayMar's in-house process. The fabric is bound to the panel in a uniform way to ensure the consistent quality of every panel. The reverse side is finished with RayMar's exclusive melamine finish. This creates an acid-free archival support that resists warping and provides a permanent barrier against deterioration from moisture or mold.
Conservators strongly recommend painting on a rigid surface so start every painting with a RayMar Panel. Fine art belongs on RayMar.
Package includes a total of 9 panels. 3 panels of each size: 9" x 12", 11" x 14" and 12" x 16". Valued at $200.
