DIY Canvas Wall Art Ideas: 35+ canvas tutorials

Acrylic paints can be used on unprimed canvas, but applying a thin layer of gesso (an acrylic primer) will improve the canvas’s longevity and prevent the paint from soaking into the fabric.
Start Painting:

Acrylics dry quickly, so work efficiently and keep a spray bottle of water nearby to keep the paints moist.
Use light colors to sketch your composition or create an underpainting.
Layer your paints from thin to thick, allowing each layer to dry before adding the next.
Acrylics are versatile, allowing you to paint both transparent glazes and opaque layers.
