    Anyone done it / thought about doing it?

    Was just looking for some new art for the house and thought why not put up some of my own (!) - however having now looked at some of the prices for getting my prints put on canvas I may go back to checking ebay for some canvasses.

    Anyone found anywhere cheap?

    I did it with some canvas that you can print on that i got from Dianes place (viking direc/office depot). The printer i used was rubbish, on a good one it would have been great. Was only A4 canvas, i think thats the only size. Could say uses ps to make a portrait look like a oil painting effect ect

    Was looking for bigger than that so was looking at people online that do it for you (and stretch it for you too)...

    You mean actual paintings/oil on canvas? I know a couple of decent places in manchester that create really affordable art. Plus i think the art council sets up interest free loans as they want more people to get in to art.

    Well Iwas looking at that kind of stuff but thought - why pay an artist when I create some perfectly good "art" myself - just thought it would be different ot have it on canvas blocks..

    something along the lines of this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=20118&item=7307056103&rd=1

    . We paid £250 for an oil painting and we love it to bits (abstract) to be honest i'd rather have that anyday. I'd pay a lot more actually
