Ikea fabric as a canvas
Materials: Saralisa fabric b/w, acrylic paint, stretcher bars
Description: For me the hardest part of painting is the drawing, since I'm not that good at it I decided to use Ikea's fabric as a canvas with stencil.
I just bought the stretcher bars and all the tools needed like a special stapler and the fabric grip. Very carefully you need to follow the instructions to frame the fabric the right way, from center to edges (in any art supply store you can get them) otherwise the fabric isn't tense enough.
I mixed my own colors with acrylic paint and started painting.
