Yesterday I showed you how I created word art on a canvas using vinyl letters and paint (Click Here). I was disappointed that when I peeled the vinyl letters away after the paint dried, much of the paint had bled through, and I did not end up with speckled (not in a good way) letters.
I tested out my theory that by priming the canvas and using spray paint (instead of acrylic paint and a paint brush), I would get clean and crisp letters. It worked!
