Though Seamus considers himself an artist, the truth is that he should confine himself to the songs and stories he sings and tells so well. When he puts brush to canvas, the result is usually quite abominable. One painting of his, of which he was initially quite proud, was likened, in the words of a noted art collector ‘something akin to what one would expect from a brain-addled kobold child, assuming said kobold child had no hands.’ After a suitable length of time to recover from the sting of that insult, Seamus went back to work on his art, though the cost of ruining canvas after canvas began to slowly pile up. Enlisting the help of his friend Tathiela d’Rulln of The Alchemist’s Pestle, Seamus eventually created the impermeable canvas, an item that would put an end to his mounting expense and waste of canvas. Impermeable canvas looks and feels like normal canvas, and is equally susceptible to damage of all kinds. It may be used as a surface for all manner of artistic mediums, from pain to charcoal to ink. However, it is intended as a practice medium, and cannot be permanently marked by anything applied to it. Though it is certainly possible to paint a masterpiece on impermeable canvas, the masterpiece, like anything else on its surface, may be wiped away with mere soap and water, leaving behind no sign whatsoever that it was ever there. Impermeable canvas is sold by the square foot.

Impermeable Canvas: 10 gp per square ft.
