    You can either buy some canvases, fairly expensive, or you can leanr to make them, a lot cheaper.

    As for the pens, i use decos and painters touch, but make sure not to write with decos on top of decos, fucks right up. Sharpies work well too ( the black for 3d).

    to make your own canvas you need to get some wood and make a frame, make sure its square.(like 90 degree angles)

    then you can buy some canvas in big rolls i think...and just stretch it over the frame...get a staple gun to hold the canvas on.

    I'll look for something on google.

    decos go over eachother
    yuo need many coats and jsut to let it dry and some patience
    u dont make your own becasue the tools alone will cost you over 100 dollars. i get the 2 packs of michaels brand stretched canvas baord for 6 dollars that is like 3 dollars each

    if you do like 100 a year then mabye its worth it
    plus you need alot of wood working tools
    u have to cut slitsin the wood and to that you would need a type of router

    sorry i dont think that prismas would go over a painted canvas board
    they may go over un unpainted one but really i dont know how it would work

    so you want to draw canvases well it a lot of work buy its worth it


    1st. buy a masonite board.. or a canvase board or a real canvase

    2nd. buy gesso or out door semi flat water base white paint make shure you thin it out correctly more that milk


    3rd. once you prime the canvase or board and let it dry for one hour then use a yellow water color marker or a yellow paint marker to sketch out your lettering or what ever you doing .......


    4th.. i dont need to explain what type of spray cap's you need but let me tell you any way get the gold belton cap's beacuse they are the most skinny cap to use beside the cap lid trick then start painting and see what happen i you became a famous artist yo just hit off with 2% of the earning's lol so then peace out and question peace contact me at [email protected]
