Useful information.


  • La peinture à l’huile est une œuvre artistique réalisée à partir de couleurs à l’huile et à la térébenthine. Ce type d’œuvre est généralement peint sur une toile de lin ou de coton. Un vernis est en outre appliqué pour protéger la peinture. Les toiles sont ensuite tendues et montées sur châssis.
  • Les peintures à l’huile nécessitent un certain temps de séchage.
  • Les châssis permettent le soutien de la toile et sa tension selon les besoins.
  • Pour l’encadrement, on applique quatre moulures de bois décorés pour cacher le châssis.
  • Pour les toiles non montées sur châssis, les changements de température où d'hygrométrie entraînent un "flottement" de la toile elle se gondole. Pour la tendre il suffit en général de mouiller le dos de la toile à l'eau claire et de laisser sécher. Cette astuce peut réparer une toile ayant subit une déformation locale accidentelle. Ce n'est valable que pour les toiles de lin pur où lin et coton mélangés, ne fonctionne pas pour les toiles en matières synthétiques
