  • Canvas not adhering to panelApproveRejectUn-ApproveSubscribeUn-Unsubscribe
    Question asked 2018-12-26 17:34:07 ... Most recent comment 2018-12-26 19:42:57
    Oil Paint

    ​Attached are 2 photos. The first is my painting showing buckling. At first, it wasn't this bad. The canvas is Raphael zinc free on a professional art panel from NY Central art supply. The bucking started almost immediately after I finished the painting. The second is the product I used to fix the edges. Ultimately, it didn't work. The buckling has gotten worse even beyond the parts I fixed. Why could this have happened and how can I fix it so the integrity of the painting is restored? C9765112-BB82-43E4-BBF3-DEE492953D7F.jpeg B187BCB1-8686-4F96-BA7D-A0A049E40062.jpeg

    I am not sure I understand the process you used to adhere the canvas. When you write, “…I used to fix the edges.” Do you mean that the adhesive was only applied to the very edge of the canvas and panel or was it applied to the whole panel and reverse of the canvas? I would not suggest the former as the adhered portions would react to changes in the environment very differently than sections that were not glued down.

    Either way, likely what happened was that the panel absorbed enough of the adhesive into itself that there was not enough remaining to successfully adhere the canvas.

    As to fixing the problem, Can the canvas be completely removed from the panel? The answer to this will greatly influence how I respond to the question.
