First, a primer of zinc white paint bound with linseed oil is applied to the glued linen by means of two knives. Then, the canvas is put into a drying room for three days where it air-dries naturally. After that, it is sanded and a coating layer based on titanium white is applied to the canvas by
means of two knives and a roller. The canvas then has to go back into the drying room for another ten days.
The finished canvases are carefully inspected one last time before they are put onto 10 m rolls and stocked in our warehouse.
