    This looks good! I dyed mine with RIT years ago...pre-Internet..The colour still looks okay, albeit faded somewhat...The water wasn't the best thing for it though. :D

    They have fabric paint at Hobby Lobby...Spraying was a breeze...Just tape off and cover inside for over spray....But I like your color and more to choose from...Nice (oh and look for coupons online for HL)

    I tried this, but the shade ended up not allowing any light to shine through. Looks good in the daylight, tho!

    Most craft store's sell in with the Acrylic paints a small bottle of different mixtures to add o your paint. Much cheaper.
