Top Tips – so far unsuccessful repair of a damaged canvas

Pat Harrison landscape paintings

Recently I told you about wanting to repair my damaged canvas. I have since tried one of the suggestions without any immediate success.

We had hoped that wetting the area and placing the canvas under a weight would bring the damaged parts of the canvas closer together. Unfortunately all it has done is, it has made the tear more visible. The canvas has tightened as we had hoped but it has not fixed the problem. It has also left a light stain in the area where the canvas was soaked in water.

Now I do not know whether it is worth applying the other method that was suggested to me. Should I glue a bandage to the back of the canvas and then paint over the rip? I do wonder if I should not paint the picture again.

If you want to take a look at the painting before it was damaged here it is.
