Today I want to tell you about my recycled canvases.
The supplies you will need are:
Cardboard box (cut down to the size you prefer, I use 7x9)
Thin Cotton Fabric
- Cut your fabric about 1 inch on all sides bigger than your board,
- Cover the board with Decou-Page and press the fabric on the board.
- Wrap the overlap fabric to the back and adhere with the Decou-Page.
- Let dry for about 10 min
- Add a layer of Gesso that is thick enough to hold a texture.
I added scrap pieces of fabric to this board while the Gesso was wet, just by pressing it into the wet Gesso. Once the board is dry, about 4 hours (or you can use a heat gun and dry it a little faster) this board is ready to use like any other canvas.
On this canvas I used the New DecoArt Media Paints. I really love the transparency of these paints.
