Painting on Polyester or Sailcloth
This has been discussed before; but I want to poll others here and see if anyone has worked with these materials.
As a rule, I don't like canvas as it is "pixelated" (the cheap stuff, especially), though if a material were finely woven, that should not be an issue. Sailcloth, for example, is very "uniform" in its weave which may lend a bad appearance -- though I am looking for a source of finely woven nylon material.
Especially, I could see gluing this to a surface with modern archival glue (not rabbitskin!).
I'm curious if anyone here has experience working with these materials in oil painting and what your impressions are.
