Last Saturday I received my Dick Blick shipment.
Along with some bookmaking supplies, I also now have the stretcher bars for Aunt Amy’s commission. Two days ago I assembled the stretcher bars, and began priming the canvas with gesso. I have two coats on, and I would like to get another two coats on before I sketch the image on the canvas.
If you haven’t seen my tutorial on how to stretch a canvas yet, you can check it out below. Harmony made the video so there are a few embarrassing moments, because she loves to make me feel awkward. And I would like to add that I let her tease me, because I’m a great sister and a good sport.
