250ml – will cover a dining chair or car seat.
If your fabric has a pile, such as velvet, faux-suede, chenille, draylon or microfibre you will need to use more product. This is because there is a lot more surface area to cover on these types of fabric. We recommend ordering double the above quantities of fabric paint for these fabric types. We would also recommend that you brush the fabric at regular intervals during the drying period to ensure that the fabric does not go stiff.
Store in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight between 8°C and 30°C.
Fabric Paint Instructions
FabriCoat Fabric Paint can be applied to all types of fabric by either brushing, sponging or spraying it onto the fabric. We recommend using a Paint Brush, as this is the easiest method and produces great results.
Using it as a fabric spray paint is mainly if you want to create a unique design, spray a stencil or achieve a pattern not possible by using a paint brush.
Which ever method you choose to paint fabric, you first need to make sure it is clean.
Cleaning the fabric
Make sure the material is clean and free of dust. For best results, the fabric must be the same colour or lighter than the colour you are applying. The material must also be absorbent. Some garden fabrics will have a protector applied, so please test the fabric for water absorbency first. If it is absorbent, then FabriCoat will work.
If you need a fabric cleaner, we recommend using our Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner. For clothing, just put it in the washing machine as you normally would.
Applying Fabric Paint with a sponge or paint brush
Dampen the fabric first with water. We recommend spraying water on with a trigger spray bottle, but if you don’t have one you also can wipe it on with a sponge or cloth.
Pour the paint into a bowl and dip in a Paint Brush or sponge. Rub this into the fabric and it will instantly soak in and change the colour. Apply one coat this way and leave to dry for one hour.
The fabric may still feel slightly rough, especially if it has a pile, due to the fibres sticking together. Brush the pile in all directions with our Cleaning Brush or a cloth to loosen the fibres and soften the fabric. This process will also remove any excess fabric paint that didn’t soak in properly. Brushing the pile while the FabriCoat is still wet can also help to avoid any roughness as it dries.
If needed, apply additional coats once the previous has dried. Leave it to dry naturally overnight, and your fabric is ready to use.
Using as a fabric spray paint
Spray painting fabric is easy and can be used on upholstery, soft furnishings, car interiors, clothing, footwear and all other fabric materials.
Thin the fabric spray paint down with 50% water, which will help penetration into stubborn fibres. Pour the solution into the Airbrush and proceed to spray it onto the fabric.
First spray from side to side, and then up and down, to get complete and even coverage. Or spray it on in any other way if you’re using it to create a pattern or specific look.
The fabric paint can then be dried with a hair dryer or left to dry naturally. The material will be usable within an hour, but it will continue to cure overnight.
Q. Can I use your fabric paint to paint any fabric item?
A. Yes, FabriCoat is incredibly versatile and can be used on any fabric item including chairs, sofas, upholstery, clothes, curtains, car interiors, carpets and many more!
Q. Will painting my fabric change the feel?
A. No, FabriCoat is designed to dry with a soft, flexible finish, allowing you to recolour, or change the colour of your fabric items without changing how they feel. However, if you apply too much fabric paint, or if the material you are applying it to feels very soft/silky/velvety prior to application, then it may slightly stiffen the fabric. This can be reduced by brushing the fabric afterwards with our Cleaning Brush.
Q. Can it be used as a fabric spray paint?
A. Yes, spraying the paint onto fabrics is a great way to cover a larger area quickly, or, to create specific design effects.
Q. Can the fabric paint be used on any colour?
A. Yes you can paint fabrics any colour with this product. However, if you want to change the colour of an item of fabric then you must go to a darker colour.
Q. Is it a fabric paint for clothes?
A. Yes, it can be used to paint clothes and all other items of fabric such as sofas, shoes and soft furnishings.
Q. Do you have a black fabric paint?
A. Yes, there is a black fabric paint in our range of colours. This is highly concentrated so is great for both restoring or changing the colour of fabric to black.
Q. Can you use acrylic paint on fabric?
A. Our Fabric Paint is not an acrylic paint, it is made from polyurethanes and so is a lot more flexible. We wouldn’t recommend using an acrylic paint on fabric.
Q. Will the fabric paint colour come off in the wash?
A. No. The FabriCoat takes 24 hours to become touch-dry and can be used after that, but we recommend waiting a full seven days before washing the fabric to allow the colour to fully cure. Once it’s fully cured, the material can be washed and cleaned as normal.
