A TECHNIQUE FOR STRETCHING AND FRAMING A DOUBLE-SIDED CANVAS

Barry R. Bauman


ABSTRACT—The conservation of a canvas that has been painted on both sides presents certain difficulties. The author discusses a stretching and framing technique for a double-sided canvas that incorporates a controlled spring mechanism connected to a movable frame liner. The overall effect of this method insures continuous canvas tension, as well as uniform tension to both warp and weft.
