How do you apply acrylic paint colors?

Your Canvas and Acrylic Paints

When applying an acrylic paint on canvas, usually made with cotton, linen or jute, you will need to prime it for preparation before painting. You don't want to paint on an unprimed canvas. You can use an old brush to apply the primer using wide strokes all over the canvas. Make sure to wash your brush immediately after priming.
