Hand-painted canvas backdrops are a thing of beauty, it is another form of art in itself. With that, there are many canvas backdrops out there that are not very budget-friendly. If you have the time and space, here's how you can make your own.
This isn't a quick project so make sure you have plenty of time carved out in your schedule, a few hours at a minimum. Also depending on how large of a backdrop you plan on making, make sure you have plenty of space for that size to be laid down.
In this video from photographer Brandi Nicole, she shares her process of painting a canvas backdrop. She gives a recommendation of which type of backdrop she has found that works best and a few tips from creating several of her own backdrops.
While you can definitely use the same tools she used to give the backdrop texture, you can experiment with different types of sponges and rollers. You might want to experiment on a smaller surface to ensure you like the pattern before applying it to a large backdrop.
Have you created your own backdrops? It's on my list of to-dos but I haven't made my own yet. What have you found that works best? Let us know in the comments and share your results!
