New to the "Chatboard" but lots of questions were raised at the Atlanta show, so expect me to slowly post them all as I get my head sorted out (don't you just luv us new grumblers?? ) A point was raised that all stretcher bars should be sealed before a canvas is stretched on it- do you think this only applies to fine art, or is this becoming an industry standard? And what do you prefer to seal it with- gesso? Comments? Suggestions? Chocolate recipies?
