Question
May I paint using both oil and acrylic paints on the same canvas?

Thanks in advance,
Michelle

Answer
Dear Michelle,

Absolutely not!  They will not adhere to each other permanently if you apply them on top of each other.  However, if you place them along side of each other then you should be fine but remember not to overlap.

Sincerely,
