This would be especially good, if it could be designed to prevent the sticking of paint. Use of materials like this could be used to cover up and/or prevent graffiti. Excellent beautifying idea!

Hi Valentin Bogatu ,

Great to see your idea for canvases in the Challenge. I'm curious, what would be a few use cases for these canvases? What value would they add to spaces, and what would incentivize the purchase?

We're excited to learn more about your idea to create these canvases To understand more about how you might utilize the materials you've selected in your final product, could you please provide a paragraph or two to the question "How specifically will these materials be incorporated into your solution?" It may be helpful to do some research on how similar canvas products are processed and see how these materials may be used/substituted in that process as a starting point.

I'm including this storyboarding activity to support you in this process ( Please upload the finished storyboard to your idea in the required visual prototype/mode section of your idea submission. Excited to learn more!
