I’m JK Dooley, I’m a professional artist,
and we’re talking today about giclee reproductions. And now we’re talking a little bit about canvas,
and printing on canvas. One of the things that you’ll run into when you print on canvas
is the piece that you receive will not be a finished piece, unlike paper that you pretty
much can put in a little envelope and sell. A canvas piece typically is going to have
to be stretched, and that’s another step that’s involved, and we’re going to talk about that
a little later. But, what it involves, what it basically means, is you take a piece of
canvas like this, and through a process that requires a little bit of work, you end up
with a product like this, where it’s, basically what’s been happened is the canvas is wrapped
around some pieces of wood, stretcher bars, and secured in the back. And, it basically
is ready to hang at that point, or be framed. So, that’s what stretching means, and it’s
a little involved, it’s not a difficult process, and it’s definitely something you can do yourself,
or you can pay someone to do for you. So, that’s what stretching canvas means.
