Use Adhesives to Hang Your Canvas
1. Adhesive Strips or Hooks:
The keyword here is adhesion. Adhesive strips or hooks will spare your wall from any visual damage. Use some isopropyl alcohol to clean the surface before using an adhesive on the wall. Always make sure that you have the right number of hooks or strips for your canvas depending upon the size and weight of the art piece.
Depending upon the size, adhesive hooks are capable enough to hold the weight of canvas from 0.45 to 3.6 kg. Make sure that you distribute the hooks evenly, so a single hook doesn’t get too much pressure. On the other hand, when used adhesive strips, attach the canvas to the adhesive only for 30 seconds and then remove it only to attach it after an hour has passed. Despite whichever sticky tool you use, both require the canvas to be pressed for 30 seconds to make them set well on the wall.
2. Mounting Tape:
Another option in adhesives is mounting tape. This is only applied to wall art that is light in weight. Double-Sided tape can come handy too but only if your decor item does not exceed 500gm limit. You can even use adhesive to attach wooden panels. This way, you can get to display your custom-made photo canvas in whichever way you want on a regular shelf.
The all-time favourite and popular Velcro, can also let you not destroy your walls unintentionally. Use super glue or adhesive tape to attach the Velcro to both - the frame and the Velcro. Velcro is a well-tested option to keep your wall art firmly fixed to where you want it to be. A gentle note: the super glue option might require a little paint job later once the canvas and Velcro are removed.
