last weekend i was inspired by an abstract painting in a magazine. unfortunately, i dont have money for $50 canvases, so i created some cheapo thing of construction paper and posterboard. looks nifty, but i want something sophisticated. so i was thinking - would thick posterboard and paint create a similar effect? what kind of paint should i use?

it's actually pretty cheap to stretch your own canvasses.  you can buy duck cloth canvas for about $2 a yard and build your own frames.  a 3'x3' cavas will cost you maybe $10, lumber, canvas and hammer included.  walmart even carries canvas occasionally.

you can also buy "canvas boards" pretty cheaply, or strych old sheets like canvas....

what i like to do is to take canvas paper and then put it on a wooden frame and then frame it! and oil or acrylic paints are good but if your using old oil paints careful opening them i just splattered crimson paint all over my beautiful white shirt Cry
