I am experimenting with several different mediums but in particular i would like to know: can you put Golden Fiber Paste directly on canvas and it will stay on when finished with the picture? Is there anything that i need to do to the canvas or the fiber paste to help sucure it?

Next question is: Do you think it would stay on wood that is going to be hung? I will put a varnish over the top of the project but I am curious about whether or not that will hold the fibre on.

Thanks so much!

Hi Reta, 

I haven't been on the art colony in a while so just saw your question on fiber paste. Yes you can put fiber paste onto your canvas as long as its pre primed with gesso. It can also be placed on wood panel that is also gesso primed. When you apply fiber paste it should set for at least 24 hours before you paint on it. It will stay put after its completely dry just like acrylic paint. With fiber paste you can paint on it with watercolor also it has beautiful effects, of course you can also paint with acrylics too. You should go to golden's website at goldenpaints.com they have a lot of product information and videos about how to use their products. Hope this helps.
