Need help with stretching
« on: December 04, 2013, 09:48:41 PM »

Hi

So far most of my printing has been on papers, recently tried some tests with canvas, glue with Miracle Muck on
a substrate. I like that look a lot once in a frame, with no glass.

Now I want to try stretching on bars, that's when the drama started.

My last two attempts to wrap on bars, specially on the corners, look like something commissioned to a 6 yo child.

Any links to video showing how to stretch and fold the corners in a nice and neat way?

Thanks for the help.

Here ya go, Hug.  A quick video I made a couple months back for someone else on here that was asking about the best way to fold the corners.  This isn't the best way.  Just the way I learned.  Using some nice stretcher pliers Pitbull Stretching Tool really helps.
