Mural on canvas

I love paintings and mural work. I have done some mural work on mdf board like key holders, number board, name board, etc..  but I always wanted to try something different on canvas apart from oil painting. Oil paintings are amazing but it takes a very long time. So I decided to try something different this time by  using acrylic colors and m-seal.  Its just an attempt from me to try something new.  This might give you guys ideas.  Apologize for bad coloring. I made the background look a bit like oil painting.  

Materials required:
1. Canvas board
2. M-seal (white)
3. Glue
4. Acrylic paint
5. Clear varnish
6. Talcum powder (for mixing m-seal since they are very sticky)

 Method:
Mix grey and white portions of m-seal together.
Make murals like flowers and leaves and paste them on canvas.
Use light colors for background on canvas.
Use bright/dark colors to paint on dried m-seal.
Once the paint dries, apply 2 coats of clear varnish and let it dry for 24 hours.
