Sweep the Fabric throughly in multiple directions.
Painting Fabric. Have You Tried It?
When fabric is in good condition but just not your style any more, did you know you can chalk paint it? Here’s how!
(not recommend for the carpet like fabric)
Before. Clean the fabric.
Spray with water
Spray the fabric with water. Do not paint dry fabric. The water will help absorb the paint better this way. It will also make for easier application.
Mix water and paint together
Your consistency will vary by paint brand.
I use DIY Paint. It’s highly pigmented and can be diluted 10-1. You will want you paint/water mixture to be the consistency of a dye. Approximately a 2 parts water to 1 part paint.
Paint the fabric
Have a spray bottle handy. This will help with a smoother application. Paint the fabric in multiple directions with a thin layer. If an area is too thick of paint, spray with water and move the paint elsewhere.
Odd tool, but it worked. If you have some odd areas that the pant brush isn’t reaching, a tooth brush may help reach those lower areas.
Here's one coat. Let dry completely. It may take a few days depending on environment.
Lightly sand or scuff up the fabric after it has dried. Sweep fabric after sanding.
Apply a second coat if needed. Depending on color of paint and fabric, you may need more coats. Sand in between each coat After it’s completely dry and sweep after.
Use a hair dryer or heat gun to set the paint then Spray with scotch guard. 3-4 coats. Or seal using clear wax manufactured by your paint brand (one light coat)
