I want them all on the same size canvas. Square.
I priced the 10" by 10" wrapped canvases and decided they were too expensive and I would just get some Masonite and ask my sweet husband to cut it into 10" squares. Which he did.
Then it occurred to me that I don't really like painting on masonite, it's too smooth. I don't like the way the paint goes on.
I thought a lot about different ways to get some 'tooth' or texture onto the boards.
I thought, I could wrap them in canvas. But, I'd have to buy a bunch of canvas. Expensive again.
I thought, I have lots and lots of fabric. I could just wrap them in fabric! That might even be really interesting. It opens up lots of possibilities.
Then I did a lot of thinking about how to do it, to wrap the fabric on and have it adhere, no bubbles.
So, I've been putting it off for a while now.
Darrell (husband) did his part, he cut the squares out long ago. They've been sitting there, waiting.
So, today, I looked through my fabric stash and found some sacrificial fabric that I know I'll never use. There was probably two yards there. Doesn't matter what it looks like, it will be getting painted over.
I wrapped two boards today just to see how it went. I glued it down with acrylic matte medium. It went way better than I thought it would.
