seems like a photographer here might have experience with this... yesterday I bought 15 canvases 36x48 and larger for $60... so the deal of a century... except they all have photos glued to them. I…Continue

I posted a different thread here last week about taking too much inventory to an art festival, and it turns I have been. So now I'm looking at purchasing a used 6x12 enclosed trailer and turning it…Continue

"I got lucky and got a nice preowned Pace American trailer with just 600 miles on it, and the inside was finished out in ash paneling by a cabinet company. It's even got a drip rail down the sides that I can hang canvas art on with french…"

"If you are still looking at buying the trailer, stay away from Arising Industries trailers. They are disreputable, will lie, cheat and not honor their warranties, shading workmanship. First hand experience."

"Update: after spending 5 months looking at trailers I finally decided that my SUV just wasnt powerful enough to tow the size trailer I'd need for a walk-in trailer (7x16x7 at least) and the tall ones are just not common, so I opted instead for…"

"The age of the prints will have a bearing on how they were done. The older process was to strip the emulsion layer from a paper print and permanently bond it on top of canvas. In that process the emulsion conformed to the canvas underneath and would…"

transporting large canvases without a trailer?

Someone is giving me four 72x72 canvases and I need advice on getting them home (about 2 hours from me). I've transported 72x48 canvases previously on top of my SUV and it was a challenge - the amount of lift that creates is amazing.I'd rather not rent a trailer if I can avoid it - anyone here have any "tricks" for tying down canvases on top of a vehicle? Last time I tied them down both directions, front to back and side to side and still had to hold on to them thru the sunroof and not exceed…See More

Rick Wallace replied to Mckenna Hallett's discussion Recommendations for a ONE person tent setup?
"EURMAX is a one person orientated design. The covering stays with the structure so when you're done you release the legs,  lower, and then push the whole thing into one bundle. Pull the travel bag over it and go. "

"If the acetone (nail polish remover) is working for the glue removal, then your problem is solved. Just score / scrape the photos so the acetone can get under them, to the glue. There are different types of nail polish remover acetone and…"

"My challenge so far has been more of the paper/photo removal than the glue underneath. I tried nail polish removal on the glue as a test and it works, just stinky. Some of these are 10+ years old and the surface is super slick and flat with no…"

removing photos glued to canvases....?

seems like a photographer here might have experience with this... yesterday I bought 15 canvases 36x48 and larger for $60... so the deal of a century... except they all have photos glued to them. I tried a heat gun (slow and a bit dangerous), hot water (no help), and wallpaper removal (very little help). These were all done by a professional shop so it's not modge podge glue, and I suspect that they were glued and pressed since the surface is so flat and rolls over the edge slightly. Any ideas…See More

"Sandra, this is exactly what I was trying to get across, especially after I saw some of the trailers.  It’d not the trailer, it’s going off the beaten path with a stranger."
