We’re excited to show you how to easily cover an old canvas, so you can reuse it and paint over it at home. This is an excellent way to reuse or recycle old boards, or even turn boards into canvases for your acrylic or oil painting. You can use this to paint over oil paintings, acrylic paintings and more.

You will need:

N

Old canvas boards, or wooden boards

N

Fabric (can be old pillow case fabric, sheets, or textured fabric)

N

Paint (non-glossy)

N

Paintbrush

N

Water and bucket or tray or water

N

Old towel

N

Scissors

N

Gloves (optional)

N

Something to cover your work area

Follow along with the video for each step! You can also use this  technique for all kinds of fabric application to the board. Think about using differed scraps of fabric to make different effects. You can be creative with this, so have fun!

We would love to share more about art, such as art activities for children, adults and teens, and teach how to use different tools and materials in your artwork.
