Acrylic Painting on Canvas
- Why Priming is Important

About Acrylic Painting on Canvas with primer. I learned early in my artistry about priming the canvas with white before painting on it. If you buy a good canvas of linen itīs mostly primed, if you buy a cheaper of cotton (thatīs what I mostly use) itīs not. Priming makes a surface that doesnīt absorb so much paint and the result gets more shiny. Two layers makes a good surface.

Type of colour

A regular primer for walls is the most cheap one. Since acrylic is waterbased, thatīs the type you want for the primer.

Using the brush right

End the process with softly take the brush on straight lines, makeing squares.
