Preparing material for fabric spray painting
New fabric should be washed first to remove the moisture-resistant residue from manufacturing. When restoring colour to faded or marked fabric, or changing colour of a used item, make sure the fabric is free of loose dirt, dust, lint and any greasy marks. If needed, upholstery and canvas can be washed first with mild soap and water. Allow to dry completely before applying fabric spray paint. To protect surfaces surrounding your project, spread paper or use masking tape.
