Can you paint over an acrylic painting with white to reuse the canvas?
I have an unfinished painting that I want to repeat. Is it ok to paint over it with white? Is there any downside to this or should I just buy another canvas?

Depends how thick the paint is. I think it is generally recommended to sand the canvas before priming it again with gesso.
If you google: how to resurface acrylic canvas you should find more detailed pointers.

Yes you can if there is nothing to gain by saving it remember people pay lots for just a signature you may be renowned one day
