Thanks for that information Nolan, didn't know it worked that way.

But than, I think I'll write it on the back, as Val does, so my children of hb don't sell it when I would drop dead.  :crazy2: ;D
Maybe I'm very famous by that time, and when the media discover that you were my teacher, you will share in my fame, as it should be.  :2funny:

I thought might as well do this then while I work on  white painting. By the time Im done with that hopefully, this is dry then.

 :tooth:  No plaster. Just to keep it neat
Its still wet. Its like sticky when I lightly touch. I might have to do the drapery folds while still waiting.

Is it a stretched canvas or a canvas board you're working on?
I always paint from edge to edge and don't keep neat edges on my  paintings.  :-\

Canvas board. I didnt feel like working on the whole canvas but prefer to be neat :P. While the white object and glazing, I wanted that framed look.

It's actually a very handy way to get a framed look on those thinner "Single-thick" stretched canvas - paint the edging in the style of the frame - then tape - then paint the real painting. I've used it before with a black "frame."

Does the trick well vjah.

I see a lot of artists tape the edge of their canvasses lately, then remove once the painting is finished, very popular at the moment  O0

I understand that way of working on stretched canvas, but not on a canvas board, since they are too flat to hang them on a wall without a real frame.
On a stretched canvas, I like to paint the edges as if they are a part of the picture I paint.

But maybe Nolan is right and is it a very popular thing at this moment and maybe I am just an old fashioned old lady who sticks to traditional work too much. ;)  :2funny:

One time, I saw a painting where the sides and top painted too for 3D effect, or stuff sticking out as part of painting. There was a lady, shes retired and she's experienced painter tired of "traditional" painting. She has painted realism, impressionistic and some other styles. So this was her new endeavor. She painted the word "Memories" in cursive old style kinda tilted and fading towards end of canvas. At the end she stuck those old film negatives curled. Really moving because I remember those when I was a kid  :D  and my grandma making a picture album. That was the first and only semester I attended a painting class at community college because I then switch to PB. Nothing wrong to stick to traditional painting Germa O0 .
Funny thing at the time, I thought I was in the wrong class. I have never painted before so I felt lost because everyone is doing their own thing and I just wanted to learn to paint and at the end I was even more confused  ;D .

Oh there is these little gadget where you can tack on the back and voila, instantly you can hang the canvas board without framing them. Or tack 2 on the wall and then rest the bottom painting between these hooks.

I have paintings hanging in my house that were painted on the narrow stretch canvasses. O0
