Hi Can anyone direct me to a good tutorial/video on how to mount/stretch a piece of felt over stretcher bars, or over a box canvas?
In particular I'm looking for techniques for ensuring there are no wrinkles and how to securely fasten the felt to the bars. And whether or not it's better to first cover the stretcher bar frame with calico. I have plenty of width and height for wraparound
Look for a youtube video about stretching canvas over a frame. It's the same method. If you use a canvas that is ready for painting, you won't need anything further. Just stretch the felt over it. I would suggest using calico behind if you are just using stretcher bars. I use a staple gun.
