Mural on canvas

Image
I love paintings and mural work. I have done some mural work on mdf board like key holders, number board, name board, etc..  but I always wanted to try something different on canvas apart from oil painting. Oil paintings are amazing but it takes a very long time. So I decided to try something different this time by  using acrylic colors and m-seal.  Its just an attempt from me to try something new.  This might give you guys ideas.  Apologize for bad coloring. I made the background look a bit like oil painting.  
Materials required: 1. Canvas board 2. M-seal (white) 3. Glue 4. Acrylic paint 5. Clear varnish 6. Talcum powder (for mixing m-seal since they are very sticky)
Method: Mix grey and white portions of m-seal together. Make murals like flowers and leaves and paste them on canvas. Use light colors for background on canvas. Use bright/dark colors to paint on dried m-seal. Once the paint dries, apply 2 coats of clear varnish and let it dry for 24 hours.
