TECHNIQUES

PRIMING

The coatings and their application techniques are fundamental for the good final result together with the kind of the raw canvas and the composition of the receipt. All over the years, Leonardesca has been able to improve these techniques with experience; currently we still check every phase of the production with the utmost care and the final aspect results therefore homogeneous.

UNIVERSAL PREPARATION

The most requested canvases, thanks to their versatility, are the cotton polyester and mixed fibres with universal preparation. They are machine coated and this industrial process respects precise rules.

LINEN & JUTE CANVASES

Universally primed linen and jute require a longer production process. Firstly they are coated with two coats of glue and then with two coats of universal preparation or gesso preparation, more absorbent

OIL PRIMING

The oil priming require a more complex process and need the utmost care and attention. Two coats of glue, two coats of priming and then one or more coats of oil (up to 7 total coats) are applied.
