Few would argue that a canvas painting is an elegant addition to any room’s décor. Unfortunately custom painted canvases can sometimes be on the expensive side. Luckily, Photo In Canvas offers a simple service that allows you to take your own photographs and print them directly onto a canvas. From there you can apply a faux-painting touch to your already printed canvas photos using acrylic paints.
Home spun masterpieces born from your photos printed on canvas…
Ordering canvas prints of your photos is easy and can be done in any number of sizes or styles from Photo In Canvas. After picking your photos to be printed you can go to any local art store and buy acrylic paints and a mixing palette. This may seem daunting, but it’s surprisingly easy to mix acrylic paint colors with a bit of practice. When your photo canvas prints arrive, hang them in the area you wanted to decorate and make note of the way the colors look in that room. Try your best to match the colors as they appear in that room or area. With a small brush you can carefully begin applying the paint to the canvas. Since you’re not looking to paint over your entire photo, just apply paint at the edges of colors. To give your photo canvas a faux-painting touch, accent the small points and curves by just lightly brushing. Keep it simple is the key. If you have to go over spots, acrylic dries quickly and can be painted over.
You can be a photographer and artist all in one.
