34/35" wide Roclon multi purpose cloth; sold by the yard. Please enter the total length (in yards) desired in the box below. White on one side and medium green on the other makes this fabric useful for both light and dark backgrounds for faster paint coverage. Both sides are paintable. Roclon is easliy cut with scissors for total creative freedom. It can be sewn, does not fray or curl, is reversible, readily accepts paint, decopauge, decals, embroidery, glue and double-stick craft tape.
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.
