DIY WITH COLOUR

Having a photograph printed on canvas has become as easy as it once was to process a roll of film and print out postcard-size snaps.

But unlike small photographs that can be packed away in a box when the subject matter loses its flavour, a canvas stretched over a wooden frame is more difficult to deal with once the novelty has worn off. Why not upgrade it to pin-board status by painting it with a litre of Plascon paint in your colour of the moment?

We used Plascon Polvin Green Heart (Y7-B1-2) and employed some UHU Super Glue to stick new ideas onto our brand-new canvas.
