Re: DIY canvas panels: Do I Trim or Wrap the canvas?
I generally cut the canvas an inch or two bigger than the board. Attach it after two isolation coats and applied a layer of gel medium. Press cloth into the wet medium and start at the center and roll to the edges. (I also have a vacuum method on my you tube account that might be helpful.) I trim after all has dried and have not had an issue with fraying.
It is really a matter of personal preference.
