Colour gradation:

1. Dilute the paint with water in a bucket. Combine approximately 3 quarts (¾) water with 1 quart (¼) paint.

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

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

Overlapping colours:

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.

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

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

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

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