If you get it before it dries, you can use water (for latex or acryllic paint) and scrub it out. Then try a stain remover such as Shout. Follow the instructions. After it dries - I think you're out of luck. You could take fabric paint and paint over it. Make it into a flower or a car or your name or something.For oil paints, if you get to it while it's still a very fresh stain use sunlight dish washing detergent and it comes right out.

I've found that Citristrip Wipe-Away and Goof Off remove dried latex paint pretty well. Wipe-Away is more gentle, so I always try it first. Of course, the sooner you get to it, the better. I spilled latex primer on my shoe, then stepped on a rug in the house. I found the spot about six hours later, and Wipe-Away took it out pretty easily. Answer

Ive found that Uh-Oh Paint Splatter & Tough Stain Remover is very effective in removing both latex and oil based paint stains as well as TONS of other stains

Can you remove fabric paint from wall

Once the paint is dry, it shouldn't smudge or run, if it did, the paint wasn't dry. (Fabric Paint, is just like enamel paint, it just has extra ingredients in the paint so it can be washed)

Yes it is either in the paint section or in the fabric section.

It's perfectly safe to add your own touch to fabric window coverings by painting them with fabric paint. You can purchase fabric paint at any craft store.

I don't see why not, many Fabric Paints are Acrylic, which means the're water based, I think there is an oil based Fabric Paint, which ever you deside to use, when and/or if you deside to put a finish coat on your project, make sure you use a water based finish with a water based fabric paint and an oil based finish with a oil based fabric paint. The only difference between Fabric Paint and Regular Paint is the fabric paint has an ingredient in it to make it washable.

Yes, latex paint adheres very well to fabric. The down side is that it makes the fabric stiff in the area it was applied. If you want the latex paint to stay and be pliable, you can use a "fabric medium" available at most craft stores.

No It don't work...just threw away 50 dollars... psss best fabric paint to use on boots is the spray kind....

It is very easy to apply fabric paint to fabric. It can be done directly out of most fabric paint tubes, as they usually come with pointed tops for easy application. It can also be used by pouring it into a dish and using a sponge to apply it to the fabric. Some people use different shaped sponges, like squares, stars, leaf shapes to stamp the paint on. You can also use a standard paint brush.

You can use a fabric paint, but NOT the paint you use to paint walls.

If it is fabric paint by Tulip (aka Puffy Paint) then no. Wash away and stilll expect the glow!!

User Avatar

if you mean, can you paint other things with fabric paint? yes, however, fabric paint has special additives that make it safe for fabric and make it not so hard. Because of those additives, it is not as durable on other surfaces and could fade or chip off a lot easier than other paint.

No. No you can't. Leather is naturally brown.

User Avatar

yes,get fabric paint and some stencils.

Use a textile medium. It gives the paint flexibility if your shade is round. Otherwise, the paint might crack. Textile medium can be found in fabric stores and on-line. You can even paint regular fabric with indoor latex pain when you use the medium.

Mix fabric medium into acrylic paint

Fabric paint can be applied with brushes. Most of the fabric paints commercially available are opaque, which means they will work over any fabric including denim. You may have to apply several coats in order to get the look you are after.

There isn't a fabric paint that changes color when it gets wet. But, there is a fabric paint that changes color when it gets warm in the sun. There is also a type of nail polish sticker that changes color when exposed to the sun.

fabric paint it can be found at any hobby/craft store

If the paint dries it will, but if it is NOT dry you can remove it with hot water

Because fabric paint is made specifically to stick to clothing, it can be difficult to remove from fabric. A few things which help remove it are rubbing alcohol, hair spray, and hand sanitizer.
