I just discovered this Fredrix Canvas product at Dick Blick Art Supply store (formaly The Art Store) which is Canvas with “specially formulated gesso for all water based paints.” I just bought a 9″ x 12″ board and am eager to give it a try. The features they promise are paint that can be easily lifted, even washed off the canvas, more intense color, and durability.
You can visit the official web page where there is both a YouTube video with a very enthusisastic artist and a flash presentation. I am waiting to get excited till I give it a try this week. If it works as promised it might lead to a very cool display piece at Wondercon next month.
Stay tuned to the Log to see my first results.
