Mixed Media Art Questions


Hi Milliande,

I'm wanting to add some wood panels to my canvas (reproducing an 8x10 work on board), and have no idea how to attach the wood securely. one will be flush, one raised, and one jutting into space.

I'm working on a 50x60 canvas.

Any help is much appreciated.

Robyn

Hi Robyn and thanks for your questions... although I think I may be out of my element here... :-)

Let me clarify ... you have a stretched canvas ( not the image in the photo) that you would like to attach wooden panels too

The wooden panels need to be able to lie flush on one side ( which one? ) ?

One panel will be protruding out of the canvas but will need to be fixed to the canvas ?

Are the Woodpanels part of the artwork or just supports for the canvas?

Are they attached to the front or the back of the canvas?

What is the approx weight of the panels..are they small or large ...etc?

Lets see whether we can brainstorm this ? :-)

Just some ideas,
by: Anonymous

I have made altered paintings where I mounted a cardboard take-out box onto canvas and one time also a paper mache mask onto canvas.
I just glued it on to start with hot glue and then added alot of thick gesso to unit the pieces and make them seamless. I think it depends on the thickness of your wood. Also I think you could attach wood to the back of the canvas frame and create a surface to support wood you want to have in the front. You would need some kind of brace to connect the wood in back with the frame, maybe metal or thick leather and nails or staples. Then you could probably use small nails to hold front pieces on or glue. Hot glue won't do it alone though as it doesn't soak into the pores of a surface. Good luck. I would like to hear how you resolve this idea.

adding wood to stretched canvas - more info
by: Robyn

The green parts of the study I attached previously are the panels I mentioned for the actual piece. The flush piece will be against the front of the canvas, all are on the front of the canvas - the green lilipad looking things you see in the pic.

I don't have the wood yet - the biggest piece will be, I don't know, maybe 1 1/2 feet across.

thanks for the input!
Robyn
