Hello and welcome to RedeemWood recycled shipping pallet art canvases!
Each pallet wood canvas is personally handmade by me of recycled wood shipping pallets. These pallets are disassembled and I individually select each board that goes into your wood canvas.
Given the nature of pallet wood the characteristics and species of the wood vary from canvas to canvas and make each piece a unique one of a kind canvas. This creates amazing character and a great look. Additionally, nail holes, screw holes, weathering, and scratches are all common features of pallet wood, and all part of the art. Most artists incorporate the grain and characteristics into the art piece while others just enjoy the fun and unique wood surface. When you choose to start ordering custom RedeemWood art canvases we can discuss your specific needs or preferences.
I sand and seal the pallet wood canvases intended for acrylic, oil, or most mixed media with multiple coats of water based sealer. These water based finishes are environmentally friendly and very low in VOC. Although you will find the wood canvas to be very smooth it does have great teeth for virtually all mediums.
The joint attachments between each board are hidden. This is done by special joining of each individual piece at specific intervals. The back of the canvas is flat with no screws or attachment boards so that they are easily mounted on the wall (back hanging frames are applied upon request as well). It took numerous trial and error processes to create a canvas that I feel confidant will endure the test of time. You will see this uniquely clean and strong process when you purchase a RedeemWood canvas.
I finish them slightly different for charcoal or pencil compared to acrylic, oils or water colors so I always need to know the medium being used in advance.
I have worked pretty thoroughly with artists of these various mediums to get the best surface possible but I always striving to improve my product and welcome input and requests for a unique surface finish for your particular artistic needs.
I also occasionally come across some very unique pallet woods and I offer those on a first come basis to my artists who are regular purchasers or who have unique abilities that fit that particular wood design.
Thank you for the opportunity to present my wood canvas to you personally.
My wood canvases will be available to the general public there will be always be special offers and unique woods available strictly to artists like you!
