If you’re lucky enough to have a large studio with plenty of storage space, well good for you! For the rest of the world’s working artists, some savvy space-saving techniques may be in order. Enter the New Fredrix Pro Dixie Stretch-It-Yourself Canvas Kit. For fine artist Iris Scott, who has quite an amazing (but not so big) NY studio, the Pro Dixie Kit has been a lifesaver. “These kits make so much sense,” says Scott. “They paint big but ship small. Thank goodness Fredrix has invented this system because I can finally get behemoth primed canvases in, and out, of the building, which means bigger paintings and a more exciting artistic future.”
The Kit is a revolutionary way of stretching large canvases. It is available in 11 different sizes starting at 36”x 48”and features Fredrix’s heavyweight Pro Dixie acrylic primed canvas. Included in the kit is Fredrix’s Patent Pending “Clever Lever” which actually eliminates the need for pliers. The specially grooved stretcher bars and corner braces allow the canvas to easily square, which results in a tightly stretched canvas every single time.
Using the Kit is easy. “With the help of wordless instructions that came in the box,” says Scott, “I assembled the first one in less than 20 minutes. Now I feel like an expert—the rest assembled in less than 15 minutes! Also, it stretches the canvas extra taut using Fredrix’s patented ‘Clever Lever’ stretching system. My favorite part is saving hundreds on shipping, these are a game changer.”
The new Fredrix Pro Dixie Stretch-It-Yourself Canvas Kit can be a game changer for you too. The ease of transportation, reduced shipping costs, and quick, easy assembly is what makes the Pro Dixie Kit revolutionary.
