JenniferMaker where she made subway art with vinyl on canvas. I was inspired to make a canvas for my son. He recently played Darcy and an extra newsie in his high school production of Newsies. I found images online and mixed various fonts to create this. He was thrilled with it and mentioned having one made for each of the school plays he participates in.
I will be honest, even using the permanent vinyl, it was hard to get it to stick. I used Cricut and Oracal 651. The Cricut brand was much easier to weed and remove the backing. The Oracal brand has a stiffer backing and it would flake apart, leaving a very thin plastic-like layer behind that was a pain to remove.
I have read about prepping the canvas with mod podge, gesso, or acrylic paint. I think these would help and will be trying this in the future. I will let you know how it works out. Thanks for looking! April
