One hour build
Step 1: Supplies
As you lay each stick, consider how it adds to the structural integrity of the canvas. Your canvas should be able to hang from the wall without any issues. More sticks never hurt!
Once your canvas is ready, you are free to paint. Personally, I am a fan of doing a 50/50 mix of acrylic paint and glue. It gives a nice shine and adds to the structural integrity of the canvas.
