How to stretch a canvas

 Sometimes I have to frame many canvases in a stressfull hurry so I built a tool to help me with that. It was actually pretty easy to make and it works really well.

Instructions:

Just take four planks of the same length and pair them together so you get one on top and one on the bottom. Put something that can grip the canvas between the planks. I used ropes and put them so that they meet like the cogs on a cog-wheel when you put the planks together. Drill a few holes for the wing nuts that will press the planks together. Attach more rope so that you can pull the two plank parts towards eachother and thus stretch the canvas evenly.  Then you can build a frame, weeve a canvas and then paint something if you want to.

Happy love and a jolly Christmas to you all!

New paintings! This fall’s mission.

 

I have recently made six big frames that I will paint during this fall. I have made smaller studies for tree of the paintings so I know what theme thay will have. The other three will probably follow the same theme but I am open to whatever may happen during the process. Either all of the paintings will be in the same series or not. I will keep you updated during the making of these paintings. Stay tuned! To be continued…

The swiss army butter knife

Just before the Mayan doomsday, Dec 21, I got an unusual request from a customer:  to make a swiss army inspired butter knife for her friend who had stacked up with survival gear to survive the doomsday. The customer herself was not so certain that the end was near but she still wanted to encourage her friend with the “must have” for the apocalypse.  The swiss army butter knife must now be the most important survival tool in her friend’s awsome collection. Better luck next doomsday!
