Decoration For A Small Living Room
CORNER LAP JOINTS THROUGH HOUSINGS Kitchen Worrstand CANVAS Canvas panel
In the Final variation, the panel is a traditional canvas mounted stretcher (as would be used by an artist). You can paint a design on the canvas with oil or acrylic paints.
1 Stretcher timber is sold to the nearest centimetre or inch. Make up the stretcher to screen proportions, and then stretch the canvas tightly but evenly over the edges and staple to the back, taking care that the canvas is free of wrinkles.
2 Make up a surrounding frame for the finished artwork panel, similar to the frame for the first panel of this screen. However, the frame need not be so heavy because the stretcher is a self-supporting unit.
To hold the stretcher in place, you need only two 50 x 25 mm (2×1 in) cross braces. Fix these in the same way as the cross braces that were fixed in the first panel.
