Canvas floor cloth maine. In colonial times, people painted pieces of canvas and then lacquered them to create floor cloths. Welcome to ellie wyeth's online shop.

We use an industrial weight canvas, which is stretched and sized before beginning to paint. I always hated to spend a lot of money on something that gets dirty quickly.

Painted floorcloths hold up to substantial use. They were used partly for decoration but mostly for practical reasons since they were easy to sweep, shake and wipe down.

These floor coverings make a wonderful focal point for a kitchen sink area or entryway or underneath a dining room table. My designs are unique, whimsical and joyful.

All you need to use is a damp cloth or mop. Add color and style to kitchens, entry ways, hallways, children’s rooms, covered porches—anyplace where you have a smooth, hard surface.

Wrapping around the viewer, these paintings are suitable for a front entry, dining room or anywhere in your home where you want to bring a special landscape indoors. The common use of hardwood flooring in homes in the us today creates the perfect environment for a floorcloth renaissance.

We start with the heaviest grade of pure cotton duck canvas available. The floorcloth was initially viewed as an affordable alternative to the grander woven carpets of the wealthy, or as an imitation of marble, tile, and inlaid parquet, but came to be valued for its own sake.

This is a arduous process and is frequently skipped or partially done by less experienced floorcloth makers. Those marked “sold” can be custom ordered.

Originally made from recycled ships' sails, they were used to cover dirt or wooden floors in early american homes. The earliest colonial floorcloths were hand painted with geometric designs or fancy patterns on canvas material.
