Painting on canvas shoes

Hello, total newbie to acrylics here since I paint exclusively with watercolors but I have some old denim jackets and white canvas shoes that I really want to customize. And I can't do that with watercolor My question is do I need to apply gesso? And since I'm going to be using textile medium with the paints, should I also add the medium to the gesso?

Re: Painting on canvas shoes

Also, I'm concerned with heat setting as I've read it releases formaldehyde. Will the medium still do it's job (prevent cracking, improve washability etc.) when I skip heat setting?
