I have been wanting to try this for a while and then this order came in and it was the perfect time to try it. The customer wanted a chevron pattern with words on top. I had made one in the past with a vinyl chevron and vinyl letters on top. But this time I wanted the canvas to be painted with vinyl. So I had a plain white 12×12 canvas from Michaels and I cut a 13″ wide x  12″ tall Chevron pattern from white outdoor vinyl. I cut it wider so that it would cover the sides. (The file was from My Vinyl Designers.) I applied the vinyl to the canvas. Once I had it securely in place I applied a coat of Mod Podge over the entire canvas. I did this because I read that it seals it so paint doesn’t seep under. I then painted it with Rustoleum 2X spray paint and let it dry for a few minutes. I then removed the vinyl. I did notice there was still some seepage but using my exacto knife I was able to scrape  off the paint that seeped through. I then let it dry for 24 hours and applied the verse which was  cut from indoor vinyl.
