Create a smooth solid texture for painting using artist canvas! Molding Paste is flexible and won't crack, creating a perfect smooth surface to paint on for artists that prefer smooth plate surfaces. Covering your canvas with molding paste fills the gaps from the cotton canvas texture. Sealing the molding paste with acrylic paint settles the paint in the remaining texture making it even smoother. Finally one last coating of molding paste with a background color will create a beautiful surface smooth enough for artist paint to glide on.
