Canvas

Generally made with linen fibres, or sometimes hemp, canvas is the quintessential artistic medium. It is prized by professional artists and budding painters alike for its noble artistic heritage.
Historically associated with classical painting, canvas is now a medium for totally contemporary creation, including street art.
POSCA is intrinsically compatible with this medium, creating immediately permanent results.

Preparation

Make sure the canvas is properly primed before starting work.

All the POSCA techniques and effects can be used on canvas.

Fixation

No special fixative is needed for POSCA on canvas, but if you want to optimise conservation over time, you can apply a water-based spray varnish. Hold the can about 30 cm from the surface and spray in slow circular movements.
The varnish can be matte or gloss depending on the look you want.
