Once you are ready to paint, dampen one section of fabric with a spray bottle of water. It does not need to be soaking wet, just damp to the touch. As I mentioned above, I did five coats of paint attempting to cover up the flowers on my outdoor cushions. If you are painting over a solid color, two coats may be plenty. Yes, Krylon® can be used on fabric or clothing. In fact, Krylon spray paint is a unique opportunity for you to become your own personal fashion and interior designer by providing you with a fun, easy and affordable way to update your wardrobe and home fabrics. Protect your patio furniture, cushions or awnings from the rain and from staining by treating with Aqua Armor for Patio and Awning. Formulated for use on outdoor natural fabrics, Aqua Armor for Patio and Awning is a water-based waterproofing spray that helps keep moisture out as well as help to prevent mold/mildew. If the cover can be removed, you can consider dying just that, but remember that most outdoor cushions are designed to withstand the elements, and so the fabric may have been treated in a way that makes it impossible to dye with ordinary dyes you can get from your local craft shop.

On average, it will take about one hour for projects to dry. This number will vary depending on the material being painted, humidity, and more. We recommend you wait 72 hours before using or washing the item.

(Altho the spray cans break down and stop spraying too quickly). The way to "set" paints is to heat set them either for 30 minutes in the clothes dryer or using a hot iron. I don't know if this works for paints that are not fabric paints.

Can I wash the fabrics that I paint? Yes, as long as you used fabric paint and the paint is completely dry. You might want to turn the garment inside out, and dry it on a clothing line (as opposed inside a clothes dryer).

Basic Spray Paint Techniques First, make sure that the surface to be painted is clean, free of rust and debris, and smooth. Any surface bumps or imperfections will show through the paint, so use sandpaper or steel wool to clean and smooth the surface, then use a lint-free cloth to remove any remaining dust.

Most outdoor cushions are made with synthetic fabrics (i. e. fabric that contains more than 35% polyester, acrylic or acetate). As a general guideline, one bottle of Rit DyeMore will dye one pound of fabric.

Unfortunately, not all waterproof materials can be dyed. In fact, it is the waterproofing that prevents the dye from seeping into the surface. This does not, however, mean that all waterproof materials cannot be dyed. It just means that some can, and some can't.

One way you can paint you cushions (supposed to work with chalk paint but I've only tried it with latex paint) is to get Fabric Medium - Martha Stewart is one brand but usually you can find it at big box craft or fabric stores. Fabric medium is what keeps the fabric from stiffening after painting. Clean the cushions.

Bring your upholstered item outside for the dye process. Wear rubber gloves and shake dye bottle. Add a full bottle of Rit liquid dye in Fuchsia to about 4 gallons of very hot water and stir well. We used a regular, big paint brush. Simply paint the dye onto the dry upholstered chair.
