Art for your floors
What are Floorcloths?
Floorcloths are extremely durable, hand-painted canvas rugs that may be used on a hard surface anywhere in your home that you may want a work of art that is as functional as it is beautiful. They will add warmth and beauty to cold floors, provide a soft standing surface, and a lovely decorative accent to any room in your home. A well-constructed floorcloth will stand up to years of heavy foot traffic, and they just wipe clean with a damp mop. They can be used to protect your floor from spills by placing them under highchairs, pet bowls, or potted plants. They may also be used as wall-hangings or table coverings.
How I make my Floorcloths
My Floorcloths are made with an emphasis on durability, ensuring that they will stay beautiful for decades. I start with a very heavy canvas made especially for floorcloths. Two coats of primer are applied to the top and bottom. The artwork is done with high-quality, lightfast acrylic paints. When the artwork is finished and has cured, I apply several coats of an extremely durable, flexible, non-toxic, non-yellowing marine varnish. To further repel dirt and soil, I finish the piece with a non-yellowing paste wax then buff to a lovely patina.
