      Ok, so I am using 4 white canvases and using wooden letters to spell love. What I am wanting to know is what should I put on the canvases to make it easier to dust off and to keep them from tuing yellow. Should I modge podge them? I want them white because the trim is white, and I am painting the letters the color of the walls since I have paint left. Any help would be appreciated.

        I think gesso is what you want. It's (usually) white and is used as a base coat.

          I would use Modge Podge. πŸ™‚

            I normally use a thin coat of modge podge to seal my projects.

                Another option–Gloss gel medium is clear and won't yellow or matte medium if you don't want the shine. Sounds like a cool project!

                  Thanks ladies!!

                  Katy, it's a very simple project. I was originally going to use burlap, and I actually covered one but I don't like the burlap as much as i thought I would. I do like having four canvases, two on top and two on the bottom spelling love with the O off center. Just something simple but yet making a nice wall feature.

                        I can't wait to see it! For sealing the projects, I would use Beacon's Fast Finish. It is SUPER QUICK drying.

                            Can't wait to see the finished result Barbara and to hear what you finally decided to use to seal it! Way to go working off the page!

                              Paulien, I don't think I've ever noticed that. I'll have to look…

                                  I wish I worked as fast as the rest of you! I have too many projects going on and can't seem to finish any of them. I am still working on them though.
