I just started my first canvas painting....messed up washed off all the paint....dried really good....now it seems that it scratches really super easy...is this the norm....oh i might add that it was from a canvas book that my mother had used before she passed in 1996...prolly even 20 years older than then...im afraid that when i finish even if i clear seal it that it will peel or something.....is the canvases age the factor?? or ???? anyone???.
 
Not sure. Might've loosened the coating on the canvas. Let it fully dry a day or so and check it again
 
If you're impatient like me, you might try an air heat gun - ON LOW SETTING - and very VERY gently dry it out this way.
The further away from the surface [ but not too far that it's not getting any air at all! ] the better.
Go real slow, and try to even out the spread of drying areas, as this will help keep it's shape.
