    no they don't, sharpies suck on canvas. use the ones that have paint and ink, not a lil sponge inside aight

    The only sharpie I'd consider using on a canvas would be black for and outline, but even then you're better off just using Painter's Touch. Pilot gold or silver would work good too. Other than that, personally I use and airbrush for a fade.

    any paint will work, but you need really good flowing markers to write over it, because if you write over completely dry spray paint with sharpies it just eats into the paint and gets blurring, if you overlap on the paint. i think a deco would work really good, but most of mine have retarded nibs because im dumb and screw them up, so they turn out like shit on anything except newspaper stands and pay phones

    go to micheals and find the colors in deco or painters that your planning on using. make shure you get wat type of nib size you need(ultrathin,thin,bullet,chisel) and pick them up and put em in yer pockets. go home-paint canvas =D and primer isnt so smooth..when you touch it it feels kinda chalky so i dont recommend primer...just a colored spray.

    don't paint it use gesso. I will only use paint markers on canvases. decos or if you're pretty good step it up & get molotows or something like that. then after every piece I put a clear coat over it.
