Oilcloth fun

We're trying chalk on black oilcloth as a more casual alternative to oil pastels on paper cloths. It's really wonderful having such a large sketch pad. I can draw actual size as opposed to little scratches on lost legal pads. Why not jumpstart a painted floorcloth by laying some acrylic on an oilcloth and then layering some varnish on top? This is good practice for painting on linen tablecloths.
