Through the changes in our home, one of my prepared canvases became slightly damaged. I haven't had to repair a torn canvas in quite some time, and though I know I've spoken of it before, I thought I would share my process again. The first thing I do is to gather my supplies which include scissors, a piece of canvas which I cut a little larger than the tear, gel media (a thick acrylic 'glue') and a brush that isn't precious as gel media can be difficult to clean off. I coat the patch with a good layer of gel media, adhere it well to the back of the canvas, coat the top of the patch as well as the opposite side (front) of the canvas and then allow it to dry well. Once I have painted over the repair it is almost invisible.
