Can You Paint Fabric?

You can paint fabric; however, you may have better results if you use a dye. If you do choose to paint, use a canvas or fabric paint. Because fabric tends to absorb paint, you may have better results if you dillute the paint by adding water. This will allow for better absorption and discourage the finish from cracking.

    Tips & Warnings

  • Be sure to wash the fabric prior to painting; as unseen dirt may prevent adhesion and/or absorption.
  • Don’t use plain latex paint, or cracking will result.
