About Fabric Paint

FabriCoat is specialist fabric paint used to change or restore the colour of any item of fabric. This all-in-one fabric paint is extremely easy to use; just apply to the fabric with a brush or sponge and it will instantly soak in and dye the fabric.

Available in range of 43 fabric paint colours, it can be used on sofas, upholstery, car seats, footwear, clothing, handbags and all other items made from fabric. The colours are strong and vibrant and will not fade or rub off after they have dried.

Once applied, the fabric paint remains soft and flexible providing a lovely, long-lasting finish that can be enjoyed for years. It soaks into all absorbent materials and once dry it will not make the material go hard or stiff.

The fabric paints can be mixed to match any colour of fabric and either used to restore fabric or paint custom designs onto the fabric. If you’re using the fabric paint to change the colour of fabric, make sure the fabric is currently a lighter colour than the paint you decide to use.

The photo is an ivory fabric we have changed colour, showing how the product has soaked in without changing the look or feel. You can still see the weave perfectly.

FabriCoat fabric paint can also be sprayed with an Airbrush onto the fabric. Using it as a fabric spray paint allows you to be creative with its application, which is ideal for creating a custom look.

FabriCoat Fabric Paint is Suitable For

Sofa, Armchair, Chairs and Furniture Car Seat or Interior Handbag Shoes, Boots or Footwear Jackets or Clothing

 

Use FabriCoat Fabric Paint to restore or change the colour of any item of fabric, textile or canvas. It can be applied with a Paint Brush or sponge, or even as a fabric spray paint using an Airbrush.

It works well on all types of fabric, both natural and synthetic.

FabriCoat Fabric Paint Coverage and Shelf Life

250ml - will cover a dining chair or car seat.

500ml - will cover an armchair.

1 litre - will cover a three-seater sofa.

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.

Store in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight.

Store between 8°C and 30°C.

Once opened, use within 1 year.

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.

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.

Apply a second coat of fabric paint in the exact same way as the first. 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.

Fabric Paint - FAQ

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.
