When you glued down the canvas, was it just edges, or did you roll on the glue?
And what was the dilution in and how much?
I was going to epoxy until I saw this, and I must say it turned out beautiful!
I actually brushed straight Titebond II onto the entire wood surface before canvasing. The glue was so
thick it was hard to roll. The canvas just went on like a piece of wallpaper-kind of fun, but we had to be careful not to be off or slanted at all with 8 feet to unroll! Definitely a two-person job!
We let it dry for a couple of days, then painted (rolled this time!) with about 2/3 Titebond II to 1/3 water. Really soaked it! When it dried it was truly so rough and hard that I scraped myself rubbing up against it. Then sanded and painted.
Hope this answers your questions!
