DIY Photo Canvas Part 2

So where did I leave off.  Oh yes.  I had finished taking the paper off of my canvas.  The authors of the book said that sometimes the image will lift a bit in places as you rub the paper off but I didn’t experience that.


This is what was left.  I was so surprised!  It looked way better than I thought it would.


In the book it said to put a coat of the Liquitex over top and let it dry overnight.


I let it dry and then applied the Liquitex the next day.


It dried quickly and I was so pleased with the results.  I will for sure do this project again.  Perhaps with a black and white photo.  I think that I would probably try it on a canvas where the photo would go right to the edges.


So what do you think?

    I love this idea! I think I will likely try it! It would be awesome to use to capture some old pictures of the 50`s and 60`s I inherited from my Mom when she died. Or, black and whites of our trip to china (rather than trying to figure out how to frame them expertly! Thanks, Michele!
