I have one that was done and doesn't have enough border to stretch - and I have known people to mount old canvases with Fusion 4000 onto a stable/archival board.. but what about a new canvas transfer?

What do you think?

Thanks,

Roz

I once transported a new canvas transfer in the trunk of my car with a sheet of foamcore on top to "protect" it. It was a hot day and the heat in the trunk softened the finish enough so that parts of the surface attached itself to the foamcore. Yuk!

Based on that I would not want to try Fusion 4000 at 200 degrees or so!

How about Crescent Perfect Mount?

What about the canvas transfer family photos taken on the cruise ships? Has anyone gotten any of those to frame? Are you stretching them or mounting them?

if it is an old grange graphics transfer only do it cold. i would sugest super 77 on the substraight and a lighter coat on the back of canvas then a good 15 min in a cold press.

no liquids and no heat

have done this a few times...I favor perfectmount(NO nasty spray), then a long time in press followed by overnight or longer under many mat boards.....works well
