Who says canvas's are for paint only? I learned by spilling alcohol (not the kind you drink) on acrylic paint, it does weird things. It takes some of the pigment out and when it dries, you can see the difference where the alcohol was because the color fades. Also, if you take any acrylic paint or water soluble "Mod Podge" and slather it on an image, then slap it face down onto the canvas, the image will transfer onto it. So after taking newspaper, old books, and one of those religious candles and using the images along with paint, I made my first mixed media artwork. Also, I sealed it with clear nail polish too. Yay. Cleaning up was a hassle but worth it. Im going to let Steveo try it on another canvas next and see what he comes up with.
