About Fabric Paint
Fabricoat is a brilliant extension to our range of leather paints allowing anyone to simply pick up a bottle and apply to any fabric to restore or change the colour. Fabricoat can also be used to create individual designs and patterns.
Once applied Fabricoat Fabric Paint remains soft & flexible providing a lovely finish to be enjoyed for years. It soaks into all absorbent materials and once dry it will not make the material go hard or stiff.
With all Fabric Paints, they can only be used to change a lighter colour to a darker colour.

Fabric Paint can be applied onto any type of fabric to restore or change the colour, and it can be applied by either brush or spray.

Instructions - 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.
Step 1 - Cleaning the material
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.
Step 2 - Spraying on the Fabric Paint
Thin the Fabricoat down with 50% water, or Penetrating Solution, which will help penetration into stubborn fibres. Pour the solution into an airbrush or sprayer 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.
Fabricoat can then be dried with a hair drier or left to dry naturally. The material will be usable within an hour but it will continue to strengthen over the next 72 hours.
Other application methods for Fabric Paint
Fabricoat can be applied by brush, cloth, spray or by submerging the fabric in a bucket. Each method will give different results depending upon what you are restoring.
In all instances the fabric should be cleaned before you paint it. Do this using our Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner.
If you're painting designs onto fabric then you should use the product neat. If you want to dye the fabric then you should mix it with 50% water or penetrating solution first.
