Dyed Curtains and Cushions

Do-it-yourself workshop presented by Tania Trudel, contributor to the show À 4 épingles on MAtv. Project inspired by the blog L’an vert du décor.
Materials:
  • Pébéo paint or chalk paint
  • Cushion or curtain made of natural fibres (e.g. cotton, linen, wool)
  • Water
  • Bucket
  • Foam brush
  • Plastic bag (or protective liner)
  • Stencils (if desired)

Colour gradation:

Step 1: Dilute the paint with water in a container. Combine approximately 3 parts water with 1 part paint.

Step 2: Let the tip of the cushion or curtain soak in the bucket of water.

Step 3: Allow the fabric to absorb the mixture of paint and water to create the colour gradation.

Overlapping colours:

Step 1: Use Pébéo paint. Since it is quite opaque, there is no need to dilute it with water. You can dilute it, however, to produce a more shadowy effect.

Step 2: Remove the cushion cover (important, since you are dyeing only the cover and not the cushion directly).

Step 3: Place a plastic bag in the cover opening. The bag will keep the paint from completely saturating the fabric.

Step 4: Use a foam brush to spread the paint over the fabric surface. Overlap 2 similar or complementary colours for greater depth.

Step 5: Once the paint is dry, the dyed fabric can be machine washed in cold water.

You can also use stencils and choose a motif that really suits you to decorate cushions.

NOTE: Never use spray paint with fabric.
