How to paint a mottled backdrop using a canvas : LUSENET : Ask William Photo : One Thread

I jumped the gun and purchased about 25yds of canvas (I didn't know muslin was more common) and I don't know what types of paints and techniques I should use. Is latex the proper type for canvas? Should I use dye, or a paint roller? I want something that will last and not flake off leaving messes wherever I go. I need to use the canvas as I've lost the receipt and can't return it.

Thank you very much,

seems to have the answer, and I've been searching for a while myself for how to paint on muslin.
