"Leaves of Grass" (well, ok- why not?) Krylon canvases

At work on the Leaves of Grass canvases
Krylon Ivy Leaf, and Metallic Silver, Semi- gloss black.
Love Silver on canvases. Tip o the day: The way to truly achieve the really shiny silver finish on canvas texture: Use Gesso (Krylon Gesso Spray) then Gloss White, then the Silver. Mask off your stripey areas, spray Ivy leaf and Silver. The silver shine is fabulous and not really evident in this version. But click on the picture and you'll see it better- close up. You'll also see how shiny and vibrant the green is when it's shot for the magazine.
