Paint A Canvas
Transform an outdoor room with a canvas artwork created using screen printing techniques.
If you already have a screen printing kit, you simply need to buy a blank canvas to create original wall art on a DIY budget.
To make the stencil for a large canvas or wall hanging, use self adhesive paper, such as Contact.
When using this method to paint a canvas, limit yourself to four or five colours, and consider using an online palette generator to take the guesswork out of choosing which colours work best together.
Use acrylic paint for both the background and the stencil, but dilute the background colours with water for a soft effect that won’t compete with your design. Apply the darkest colour for the stencil pattern.
TIP Allow the background paint to dry before screen printing.
