Straight basket weave floorcloth is hand made with #10 heavyweight canvas that is pre shrunk by the artist to stabilize it and prevent buckling. She primes both sides, twice. The front is then sanded for a smooth working surface. 2 - 3 coats of exterior latex paint are then applied to the canvas. Colored pieces are cut-up, patterned and sewn together like a quilt. The completed piece is then finished on both sides with a clear, flexible water-based varnish. The edges receive a folded and glued hem to to give them a clean finished look and help the piece lay flat. Made to order. Custom colors and additional sizes are also available.
