I found the information below on an older post. I have an older painting I'd like to apply this to. my question is where to get the supplies?
Thanks,
Paul



"Strip lining with 8XX polyester and BEVA 371 film is the answer! This simple (but valuable) skill is the solution to properly add additional material to a canvas so that it can be properly stretched."

Check the condition of the canvas carefully. If it's an old canvas it may have deteriorated to the point
where strip-lining may not be be ideal thing. Better to line the whole canvas, i.e. bond it onto a new canvas. 😉

Welcome to the G btw. 😁
