Art that makes you smile

Making Blanks

As I am working to get ready for the Edmonds Arts Festival (June 14-16th) I have been making lots of floorcloths in various sizes. The first step in that process is what i call Making Blanks. This process starts with cutting a large piece of heavy canvas, putting gesso on both sides, cutting the pieces and hemming them. Once I have the pieces ready, then it’s time to put a couple coats of paint on both sides to get it ready for the design.
