Create velvet-like textures in your art when you learn how to paint and stain on unprimed canvas! In Acrylic Painting Workshop: Raw Canvas Staining, Nathalie Kalbach teaches you, and student Kristy Conlin, how to paint and stain on raw canvas in multiple ways. Create modern, abstract art by pouring acrylic ink and paint mixtures directly onto the canvas for an organic look, or guide the ink and paint using paintbrushes. Once you’ve mastered those techniques, move on to using stamps, stencils and acrylic paint markers to create more defined images. Finally, learn to use crayon wax and encaustic wax for two styles of batik-type art. As you experiment with staining raw canvas, Nathalie will also give you ample ideas for future raw canvas staining projects.

This video includes:

  • 17 techniques for raw canvas staining
  • Ideas for staining raw canvas tote bags, aprons, pillows, journal covers and more
  • 110 minutes of premier workshop instruction
