Hi guys!! You always help so much when I'm in a pickle so I'm counting on you once again!! I painted a canvas and then I cut a saying using outdoor grade vinyl. I have the hardest time getting the vinyl to stick to the painted canvas. Would contact paper work better? Would regular vinyl work better? Any suggestions or experiences shared will be appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

I did some vinyl on canvas last year for Christmas gifts using Word Collage cartridge. I didn't paint the canvas but I did put a coat of Mod Podge on it first. The vinyl stuck fine. I also put a coat of Mod Podge on over the vinyl on some of them but I didn't notice any difference between the ones with the extra coat and the ones that didn't.

Maybe you could try the Mod Podge over the paint and then aply the vinyl.

Mine sticks but can come off easily too. I like it that way cause I could always change it. But it has never came off by itself.
