Hello, I’m learning how to oil paint using Mark’s method. I recently bought his Geneva canvas stain.
In the videos regarding canvas stain, he doesn’t specify if this canvas stain goes right onto the raw linen canvas, or if the canvas has been primed first with an acrylic primer, or gesso. Can anyone shed some light on this? I’ve read that if oil goes straight onto linen, it will rot. I don’t want a painting to be ruined by messing up the first step.
Thanks in advance!
