      @Thanks Mary. You should be able to paint it, though there's always the chance of it cracking even if you use a fabric medium since it will be outside exposed to the elements. It's certainly worth a try. You'll want to use a good primer to seal the fabric before you paint. With polyester you're better to stay with a latex even if it will be outside. Check with an expert in the paint department where you purchase your paint. They should be able to help you. If they act like they don't know what they are talking about ask if one of the clerks is a painter by trade. Often clerks at HoDe and L's are part timers that work in the trade during the day.

    I have heard that one can paint fabric with what is called chalk paint. Try searching for Annie Sloan's site. She has instructions for this.
