Product Description

#12 Cotton Duck is an Ideal Choice for Artist Canvas, Theatrical Staging, and More.

Our #12 Canvas is constructed of 100% cotton and features a tightly woven flat duck weave. This fabric is extremely versatile and easy to work with. #12 cotton duck is very popular as an artist canvas and works well with both acrylic and oil base paint. Typically, an artist will stretch this canvas on wooden stretcher bars and coat canvas with a layer or two of a white sealant called gesso. For more information on how to stretch a canvas, please visit our article on How to Stretch Unprimed Canvas in 5 Easy Steps.

#12 Canvas is also very popular for making slipcovers for furniture.

Selecting your Cotton Duck Canvas

Canvas is classified by weight in ounces only when it is a single filled canvas weave. Single filled canvas is less dense than number duck canvas. Number duck canvas is double filled and much stronger. Number duck canvas has a universal numbering system starting with #12. As the numbers go down, the material gets heavier. There is a mathematical equation that transposes the # into ounces per square yard.

For more information on common uses of various cotton duck grades, please visit our classification chart.

The canvas, after ironing and priming (which I knew I'd have to do), is working great for my oversized painting.


Deanna K. published 23/04/2018 following an order made on 14/04/2018


As a professional artist I use this product full time. It is consistently of high quality when ordering individual yards, a full 50 yard roll or the extra wide.

Better than anything I can get in my area.
