What do I paint on a mini canvas? The possibilities are endless when it comes to painting on a mini canvas. It all depends on what you want to achieve and where you’ll end up putting your mini canvas. You can paint a small scenery or create a piece of abstract art. These surfaces can also be used for mixed media so you could even do a collage on them. 


How do I hang mini canvases? Hanging a mini or small canvas is much the same as hanging a larger, full-scale canvas. But because they're much lighter, you can also use alternative hanging methods.


The most common options include:

Nails - Hammer into the wall leaving enough nail poking out to hang your canvas on.

Sawtooth Bracket - Screw a sawtooth bracket into the back of your canvas for better stability.

Eye hooks - Strong enough for any canvas, eye hooks don’t take up much room between the wall and frame. 

J-Hooks - A simple, smaller hook will work best for a mini canvas.

Adhesive Strips - An excellent choice if you don't want to leave marks on the wall.


What do I draw on a mini canvas? You can draw anything you like on a mini canvas.  Keep in mind that the surface is more textured than paper so you may get a different result than you would on paper. 


How much does mini canvas weigh? Due to their small size they are typically very light. Our 7.6 cm x 7.6 cm canvases weight about 18 grams and our 10.2 cm x 10.2 cm canvases weight about 26 grams. Depending on the materials you use to paint your mini canvas, its weight could slightly increase.
