#920 edge of plate

sold While painting this, I took out a little brush for the detail work and I remembered I used to detail paint Rabbit Razors (razors shaped like rabbits) in college as a part time job. Other News: Anyone have any tricks for painting with acrylic on canvas? I paint mostly on masonite because I love how buttery the paint is on the surface, but I'm wondering is there any way to treat a canvas to get the same feeling with acrylic?
