This canvas print was left out on our covered deck last winter. It seems to have faded pretty bad. How can I intensify (bring back) its colors?

    HI S.s, Does the the canvas wrap around so you can try an 'inconspicuous spot' on the back? Sometimes a coat of clear varnish can make colors pop. Use non-yellowing varnish....I would first test it if you can on the back. If it gives you the colors you want, use a foam roller and apply a couple of coats of varnish to the canvas. Good luck!

    I used alcohol ink on an old wind sock and the colors are like brand new. It’s awesome stuff! Might work for your project.

    I used fabric pint and a stencil brush on a faded rug. It washed beautifully.
