These are marvelous substitutes for rugs, in rooms where they might not be appropriate. I use mine in front of the stove, and when I go camping. I will be providing the primed canvas; it’s a seriously heavy weight material so it is unlikely to slip. In the morning we’ll be painting the canvas with acrylics so that they’re fast drying. After lunch, we’ll do any touch ups and apply the layers of high gloss polyurethane. If you wish to bind the edges I’ll tell you how to do it at home, once the surface is completely dried. I prefer the look of an unbound edge, but you may prefer something different.
