Re: Annie Leibovitz Backdrop?


Jitu,

Buy duck canvas right off the roll at your local art supply shop. Then head to the Oil Painting section and buy white Gesso. Get yourself a broad (4\") Sable brush, and head home. Under these circumstances, a paint roller will do.

IMPORTANT When you Gesso a canvas it will shrink! In the context of a painting, this is a good thing because it pulls the canvas taught over the stretcher bars. My advice to you is to lay the canvas flat on the floor with heavy objects around it\'s edges, then prime. THE CANVAS WILL ALSO STIFFEN.

Buy more than you think you\'ll need to compensate for the shrinkage. Then, it\'s crafty airbrush work, or if you\'re that good, spray paint. I could do it for you with spray paint, with ease. But, I\'m in NY.

Good luck!
