Arabesque Runner & Banner
The modular nature of this surface allows you to adapt the length to suit your needs. The central module measures 10-1/2 x 16-1/2. The ends each measure 9-1/4" x 11-1/4". When combined the overall size of the runner is 36" x 11-1/4" Each additional center panel adds 17" (allowing for the gap and tab connectors). Two center panels with two ends create a 55" runner. Two center panels without ends create a 35" runner The center panel alone or with one end can be used as a banner. Additional panels can be added to create a longer surface.
Surface designed & manufactured in the USA!
Roclon has a fine texture weave that doesn't interfere with detailed painting the way a coarse canvas might. The only drawback is that it does have a linty surface which shows up in detailed paintings. I have found that using Primocoat™ hardens the lint and allows me to sand it away using a fine sanding pad leaving a beautifully prepared surface ready for any type of medium. I wouldn't use Roclon without the base that Primocoat™ provides. Once primed, Roclon is a terrific surface that doesn't curl the way some canvas is apt to do. Because the canvas readily absorbs the primer, a single coat is adequate.
