Is there a good way to use diluted craft paint to color macrame cord?
Janet Pizaro on Feb 05, 2018yes you can .dilute the craft paint to make it easier to paintHelpful Reply
Vimarhonor on Feb 05, 2018I find craft paints to be opaque so the colors might be somewhat cloudy on your cording, depending on material content. A cotton cording may dye different than nylon absorption wise. I use the craft paints to retouch my leather purses sucessfully they do have their uses. In theory they should work, I have used them on fabrics with a fabric medium “solution”I would suggest you do a trial sample with a scrap piece of cording to see if you like the results before trying a piece you have labored your valuable time on to avoid possible disappointment.Helpful Reply
