Who can create a custom needlepoint canvas?

michelle_phxazSeptember 11, 2011

I have an idea for a needlepoint project but need someone to put in on the canvas. If no one does this, can I use watercolors to try to do this myself?

Thanks!

No, not watercolors. They can/will bleed when you block your piece.

It seems I answered this question on the Kitchen Table forum already.

You need to use acrylic paints on the canvas, and I will link a site with detailed instructions.

Here is a link that might be useful: Painting needlepoint canvas

Michelle -
I can, if it's not too complex. I used to do it professionally.
