    I have requested samples of a 12oz Waterproof Canvas.

    http://www.fabricuk.com/fabrics/619-...roof-12oz.html

    I am thinking it may be too heavy, they tell me it is waterproof with a silicon coating on it, I am not sure if I will be able to paint or apply anything on to it, due to the waterproof barrier or if any glue will stick to it, I will wait for the sample to arrive and do some tests on it.

    This item would be ideal if it works, its available in different colours,, no need to paint it or anything..

    It would help if you talked about what you plan to do with this waterproof canvas.

    On a canvas covered canoe its not glued on, it's filled and painted it's a traditional method, when it's used for things like cabbin roofs or decks on boats it's usually glued down.

    Just to avoid some confusion, canvas is sold by weight per yard and also a number system. No. 10 canvas duck that is used on many canoes is 15.5 oz. No. 12 is lighter and is about 11.5 oz. I like the durability of No. 8 at 18 oz.
