Have started an acrylic painting for project, on watercolour paper but an starting to use heavier amts of acrylic. I want to carry on using this for texture etc, should I stop and switch to canvas?
Many thanks for the imput. The painting is in an earlier thread called Wellington City Christmas... but I don't think the view matters much in this case.

I would switch to canvas when you are going to use more amounts of colour.

Hi Gnu, Ive never done it so Im unsure as to what your result will be but for the future, if you want to work in heavier acrylics, masonite or hardboard may be what your after. It will give you a smoother surface similar to the paper to work on unless you do heavier preperation of the canvas which will be toothy. And you may find it cheaper then the canvas too..:)
