Learning the Hard Way

Regrettably I tend to learn best by experience. Though I love to learn from other’s I often try things to see why they don’t work (especially when doing them makes life easier).

Today’s lesson learned is why you should cover your canvas while the epoxy resin is drying. No matter how still your environment is, there’s likely something floating in the air. And Murphy’s Law mandates it’ll likely find your wet epoxy and harden in – LOL!

Note to self: cover when drying

Canvas: Panel vs. Stretched

I’ve always been one who learns as I go. I tend to be an experimental artist, preferring to tinker until I find my sweet spot.

So you can learn from my experiences and in case you were wondering about canvas panels vs stretched canvas, this is the visual answer. The panels warp. Even matboard fared better when I dried it on a flat surface or put it under something heavy when it was almost dry.

So if you’re like me and your enquiring mind wanted to know… now you know 🙂
