Canvas Pliers

Canvas Pliers

What are Canvas Pliers?


Canvas pliers are vital for achieving a good amount of tension when stretching your canvas.  Place your canvas frame in the middle of your piece of canvas and make sure you have enough canvas to wrap around to the back of the frame.  Use the pliers to grab enough of the material between the teeth of the pliers, and then use the ridge on the underside of the pliers to gain leverage over the edge of the frame and stretch around to the back of the frame.  Always stretch canvas from the middle of the bars moving outwards, and always insert staples opposite the ones you have just put in.  A staple gun is the easiest to use and small tacks is the traditional method.  Finished pictures or artwork that have been made on un-stretched canvas can be fixed to a frame once dry, and do not need as much tension when being stapled – just make sure they are fixed square to the frame and that you do not lose too much of the image when wrapping the work around to the back.
