Polyester is a modern fabric widely used to provide a super-fine tooth for more detailed work.
Polycotton is a synthetic blend of 50% Cotton and 50% Polyester. This blend makes Polycotton a superior stronger option for painters that need a tough solution for their canvas needs. Polycotton has an ultra-smooth finish and is perfect for detailed work with both acrylic and oil paints. Polycotton gives the works a versatile and light weight quality and is highly archival.
Cottons come in a variety of weights and densities. It is the most commonly used woven fabric support used by artists and art students.
