Building your own gallery wrapped canvas

By April Turgutalp

Building your own gallery wrapped canvas isn't rocket science.

You can save a lot of money but also be able to get the perfect canvas size for your idea. If you paint and think outside the box like I do, then finding the right canvas can be hard. For example, my Painting "Drunken donut", needed a long but wide canvas. I was only able to find long and narrow at the art stores, and they just were not perfect for the job. The gallery wrapped canvas that I built would have cost around 60-100 U.S. dollars IF I were able to find it. Building it cost me about 10$ to make.
