I wanted to see if I could do all of the art that I do on canvas, on 1/4" poplar panel board. It is only 6.99 for a 24" x 48" sheet at Home Depot, and I figured I could save some money. This is the first technique I tried, and it came out great. I primed the pieces with gesso first and the applied the heavy gel and paint. They are now framed in 12"x12" frames. The colors are much deeper than shown here, so I will try to get better pictures tomorrow.
