Unlike canvas, plexiglass is super smooth. It's also non-porous. But most importantly, it's CLEAR and it's THICK.
Because it's clear, I can use both sides and allow things painted on the back to show through to the front. Because it's thick, things painted on the front can leave shadows behind them depending on the angle of the light on the painting. The overall effect is subtly 3D, an effect that has shown up in my projects in various ways since college.
