How to paint a fabric roller blind?
- Should I sand it or wipe it with a damp cloth or sponge between the coats?
- Should I use a foam roller to apply the coats of paint instead?
- Can I apply acrylic paint on top of the chalk paint (stencil pattern)?
- What should I use to seal it to protect it from stains and water splashes from my sink?
- How well will it live up to daily rolling up and pulling down?
Sharon on Apr 23, 2018Unless you made the chalk paint to be fabric paint you will have cracking from rolling. There are additives like GAC 90 to make paint into fabric paint. You will have to get this from an art store. Do not use anymore paint unless specifically for fabric. As far as sealing - a waterproof one is advised. Seal-Crete is good. Do the sealer a couple of times. Hope this helps. Show pic when done please. It sounds awesome.Helpful Reply
Janet S on Apr 24, 2018I recently painted my outdoor cushions. I mixed a fabric sizing product in with the paint and water. 50/50 paint/water mixture with a bottle of the fabric sizing. You’ll have to paint 3-4 coats and let the paint really soak in between layers. The sizing liquid I bought was found at Hobby Lobby and is called delta fabric medium.Helpful Reply
