    Has anyone had experience in doing so? I feel like it would be a great medium to create art on. Easily to store (roll up and put away) I was just curious if anyone has had any experience spraying on it and if so how does the paint lay on it? Just trying to get any Idea. I have a lot of friends who want me to paint something for them and rather than the traditional poster board etc. I thought this might be a cool medium to create banner-like art on.

    Any Thoughts?

    -Thanks

    Those rolls are the same as what are already on pre-stretched canvasses. They are sold like that for the people that want to make custom sizes and designs. You will treat it the same you would a normal stretched canvas. So if you don't mind the texture you use as is or you will have to give a few more coats of gesso. You can also just glue it to masonite or MDF.
