Mounting Your Own DIY Canvas

Mounting Your Own DIY Canvas

If you've opted for a DIY Frame kit, you're on your way to creating a sturdy and professional canvas for your painting. Mounting your canvas before you start painting provides a solid foundation for your artwork. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to put together your DIY frame and mount your canvas:

Step 1: Assemble the Frame

  • Your frame kit comes with grooves and notches that make assembly a breeze. Piece together the frame, ensuring it fits snugly and securely.

Step 2: Identify the Rounded Side

  • One side of the frame will have a rounded edge. This side should face forward when you hang your canvas, and it's the side that will be against the back of the canvas.

Step 3: Prepare the Canvas

  • Lay your canvas face down on a flat surface. Begin folding the unfinished edges over to match the edge of the unpainted area on the canvas. Once aligned, use nails to secure the edges to the back of the frame. This will hold the canvas in place.

Step 4: Hang Your Canvas

  • Find a spot where you'd like to display your artwork. Your kit includes hangers, making it easy to position and secure your canvas on the wall.

By following these steps, you'll have a professionally mounted canvas ready for your paint-by-number masterpiece. This ensures a stable surface for your painting process and allows you to fully enjoy the creative journey. Happy painting!
