How to make a super-fine texured canvas

Take a small old canvas painting (yard-sale item) pull the staples to remove the canvas, iron a hanky, stretch and staple the hanky across the frame. Give it a coat of Bob Ross liquid white. Makes for a real finely textured small canvas suitable for small portrait work!
