Plaster on canvas?

Hello everyone,
Love this board. This is my first post so please bear with me. I am wanting to make a relief picture using plaster of paris on canvas. I have been dabbling a bit with a smaller canvas and it seems to have held well. Should the canvas be sealed first beforing appling the plaster? Has anyone experimented with this and can give me some advice? Thank-you Jen

Re: Plaster on canvas?

It is nice to have you join us, Jen I have seen relief work done in plaster, but the canvas they used was adhered to a firm surface to hold the weight. I have never worked in it myself, but I know that the plaster has to be reinforced for objects that extend more than 6" or so. Some people use metal, chicken wire and things like that. You have seen work done on freeways where they lay down metal rods for support. This would be the same premise.

Re: Plaster on canvas?

Thank you for your warm welcome and advice. I'm presently working on a canvas with plaster. So far it seems to be holding pretty well. Trying to create a tropical feel. Must be this long cold winter or I'm due a trip south. I was also wondering if anyone has tried to work with paper mache pulp on canvas to create relief.Would this be a better choice?Could you suggest any other materials? I'm after an abstract type of tropical look. Thanks again,Jen
