Sketch the motif in pencil with a little bit of help
Easily transfer our templates onto your canvas!
Download templates for our motifs here, print them out and place them underneath your canvas for an easy tracing.
On the back of the canvas you’ll find some small wooden wedges. These can be used to hold your template in position. Simply slide the wedges between the canvas and the wooden frame to prevent your template from slipping.
Shine a bright light source at your canvas from behind. This will allow you to simply sketch the motif in pencil.
Make your own tempates!
Upload a picture to our template generator and print out a black-and-white outlined template of your own.

Use acrylic spray paint for backgrounds
Prime your canvas with permanent spray in two different colours to create an exciting colour transition as a background for your art. Once the canvas is completely dry, get painting with the matching colours in the acrylic pen range.
