    • Thanks so much, Sue, I’m so glad you’re finding them helpful! There definitely is a learning curve, but the best advice I can give is to just USE it a TON. Try out all kinds of projects and don’t be afraid to mess up.

  1. Thanks for your tutorial. I have been hesitant to try this, as most posts have you taking out the staples of the whole canvas.. your method is much easier. I will have to try this!

    thank you!

  2. This is awesome! What brand of canvas do you buy I have bought two different brands and both have staples on both sides leaving marks that are hard to sand down. Thanks.

    • Mine was totally fine. If you’re concerned about it you could always test a small part before you press the whole thing.

    • You’re absolutely right, I could have done that! I liked being able to set the frame down on top of the canvas to get more of an idea of how it would look in the frame, but I certainly could have painted it before I took it off the canvas. I guess it’s just personal preference.
