    Canvas vs. Wood..

    Discussion started by fortis - Dec 31, 2003

    Im thinking about doing an abstract painting for my room.. I'm just wondering if there is a major difference between canvas and wood. Canvas is pretty expensive so will wood give the same effect?

    Thanks

    if you want to know.. use a canvas.

    well, it's like anything else, when you put yourself in a public forum (of any kind) you will be subjected to scrutiny, especially with graff.

    you asked a question, you got answers.

    it's up to you to do the math.

    a decent sized canvass is like less than $20.

    it's even cheaper if you stretch your own!


    just keep this in mind, most paint sticks on ANYTHING!


    here's a concept to think about


    "found objects"
