acrylic canvas definition

An acrylic canvas is a type of canvas made with polymer primer employed for use with polymer colors.  These colors are superior to oil paints in flexibility.  Moreover, due to breaking the fat-over-lean rule, painting with oil paint on acrylic canvas may not be recommended by some.  Due to atmospheric changes, polymer primer is ideal for painting on acrylic canvas, because it does not expand/contract to the same degree as oil paint and adheres better to an acrylic surface.
