Patio Cushion Makeover With Finish-All Paint
Painting Fabric has never been so easy! Our Finish-All Paint is a one-step paint that covers it all. It paints fabric, leather, vinyl, wood, outdoor cushions and MORE! We're featuring a live demo making over Paula's patio set from orange to neutral brown. Join us live on Hometalk 8/22/17 at 5pm EST and see just how easy it is.
Before photo in the original orange color. Prep required before starting to paint: Remove any surface debris. Most of the time this just requires a good vacuuming on fabric/upholstery. Stir your paint extremely well and then you're ready to begin. (tip: stir for 2 mins per quart, whipping from the bottom until paint begins to thicken)
Begin painting by applying a liberal coat of your Finish-All Paint to your cushion. Be sure to work the paint into the weaves of the fabric and in the cracks between the flat surface and welt cord.
Apply 1 to coats of paint until desired coverage is reached allowing each coat to thoroughly dry to the touch before starting the next. (tip: "Sand" between each coat with crumpled kraft paper or a paper bag. This releases the fibers of the fabric and softens your finish.)
What do you think? Big improvement over the orange. Now Paula can add a pop of color each season with colorful outdoor pillows. You can also paint the wicker of the chair with Finish-All if you'd like. The cushion color is Burlap.
Finish-All is UV and water resistant once cured. This paint does not require a wax/sealer and does not come off on your clothes. That's super easy DIY!
Each type of fabric/upholstery will absorb this product at a different rate but the average coverage is:
140 sq ft per 32oz/1L quart
70 sq ft per 16oz/500mL pint
Another great example of Finish-All Paint on a bonded leather sofa in Weathervane.
One more example of Finish All Paint on a leather chair in Denim. You can't even feel it on leather! It's amazing!
