Due to the higher cost of recycled materials, Liquitex Recycled Canvas is only in our Professional category at the moment.We’d love to bring it to our Liquitex Basics range if the price comes down in the future.
Liquitex is based on innovation and we’re passionate about bringing artists new materials. We are doing what we can to ensure there’s a world that’s full of possibilities for future generations of artists to thrive. For our latest canvas project,we wanted to do something different. A collaboration with Waste2Wear - specialists in turningwaste plastics into textiles - was logical. They create the recycled cloth from plastic bottles andthen we have it primed and readied for artists.
An innovative organization pioneering solutions for plastic recycling, using blockchain technology to deliver 100% traceable and sustainable textiles.
The cardboard packaging label is made from 100% recycled content and is fully recyclable. The shrink-wrap is also made of 100% recycled content and is fully recyclable. Recyclable guidelines will be different for each local authority and should be checked for both the cardboard packaging label and shrink-wrap.
Yes. The cardboard is made from 100% recycled content and is fully recyclable.
To keep it clean and protected when shipping and storing. The shrink-wrap is made of 100% recycled content and is fully recyclable.
The raw canvas roll is 13.6oz/385g/m². The stretched canvases have a primed weight of 20oz/565g/m².
The traditional depth is 0.75in/1.91cm depth. The deep edge depth is 1.37in/3.48cm depth.
No. Liquitex Recycled Canvas uses a different formulation.
It will be lightfast for at least 100 years in gallery conditions, without yellowing or changing color.
It’s a similar flexibility to regular cotton canvas and a little heavier weight-wise. We’ve given it to artists to blind-test and they didn’t notice any major differences, with many preferring the weight of the recycled cloth. Rather than the composition of the fiber, canvas flexibility usually depends on how tightly it’s woven and the flexibility of the gesso primer.
You can use it for acrylic and oil painting.
You’re helping to keep plastics out of our oceans and landfills. Using less natural plant resources. And helping to sustain a global commodity market for recycled PET plastics.
No. It is woven from thread made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.
The fabric is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, primed with gesso and then stretched to a FSC-certified wooden frame.
DPP stands for the pigment DiketoPyrroloPyrrole. It is a hybrid pigment – an innovation in pigment manufacturing where blends produce pigment with a balance of properties (i.e blend of organic and inorganic pigment). Organic and inorganic pigments differ in performance. Organic pigments have strengths in chroma and tint strength but are weaker in lightfastness and opacity; it is the other way round with inorganic pigments. Hybrid pigments provide an alternative, that help to bridge the gap between performance without neglecting environmental consideration.
The pigment PR206 used for Quinacridone Burnt Orange was discontinued by the supplier. After trying to develop an alternative hue, we realised we couldn’t identically replace this unique Quinacridone pigment, and decided to discontinue the color in Heavy Body and Soft Body.
Due to pigment PR206 discontinuation by the supplier, we reformulated this color and replaced PR206 with PR179. The new color compared to previous can be considered brighter and more luminous in masstone. In undertone, the shade is slightly bluer than previous with the same color strength. Transparency (transparent color) and lightfastness remain the same.
Rubine is an adjective formed on the ruby gem name.
