How to paint your own canvas backdrop

In this video I show you how easy it is to paint your own canvas backdrop for photography.

Checkout links and more info below.

For the most part you will need five things:

1) A Canvas
2) Paint Tray
3) Paint (Yes, very important)
4) Water
5) Textured roller

I found my canvas at www.blickartmaterials.com, (Link below) there at many options online, you can also go to your local art store to see what they have, but I really liked the one I got.

The paint I used is Acrylic Exterior Flat Paint. Make sure the paint is flat so you don't have to worry about any glare coming up in your photos when using flash/studio light. One nice thing about Acrylic paint is that you don't have to use other chemicals or solutions to use it or to thin the paint, just combine with water and create the consistency that you want.
