Are your outdoor fabrics looking faded or worn due to time and the elements? Instead of replacing them, use Rust-Oleum Outdoor Fabric Paint to give your patio cushions, pillows, and umbrella a new look.

  1. Clean the fabric with soap and water, rinse thoroughly and let dry completely. If additional cleaning is needed, use a household cleaner such as Krud Kutter.
  2. Shake the can of Rust-Oleum Outdoor Fabric Paint vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. 
  3. Hold the can upright 6-8” from surface and apply the spray paint to the outside edge of your item. Then spray the rest of the surface in a steady, back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply light coats as needed to achieve desired coverage.
  4. Once dry, the painted fabric is ready for use.
