Fabric spray .
Brilliant so wished I had discovered it earlier. Just the job for spray painting a 'Padme ' lake style dress for my Sons Girlfriend. Followed the instructions & a lovely outcome. Would not hesitate to use it in the future. Excellent customer service & very prompt delivery.
Our Dark Pink Fabric Paint is a non-toxic, CFC-Free spray specifically designed for use on fabric.
Simply Spray is easy to use, non-toxic and gives off no fumes or bad smells. Simply Spray fabric paint is great way to turn your old clothes, T-Shirts, Jeans, hats etc. into something brighter. Or why not use it with a stencil for an easy way to personalise your clothes.
Simply Spray absorbs into the fabric and dries at room temperature leaving you with a machine washable garment.

You can use Simply Spray to make tie-dyed T-shirts without the mess or hassle of liquid dyes. Just scrunch, spray and you’re done. You can also use this type of paint for clothing, curtains, lampshades, pillow cases, dolls and all kinds of crafts. Take a look at the projects section of our website to get some ideas of the sort of things you can make using Simply Spray.
It works on most textiles and natural fibres including cotton, rayon, canvas, leather and hemp.
There are hundreds of different fabrics produced in the world today, and unfortunately Simply Spray will not work on all of them. We recommend that you carry out a quick test to see if Simply Spray is suitable to use on your fabric. As a rule of thumb, if water can absorb into the fabric then Simply Spray will too. If your fabric is coated in some way and water cannot absorb into it, then Simply Spray will not work so you might want to try a paint suitable for plastic and non-absorbent materials such as our vinyl spray. You can simply pour some water onto the fabric and see if it absorbs into the fabric or if it runs off.
Spray Can Size
You will see three main sizes of spray can on our website, 2.5oz (soft fabric dye’s & stencil spray’s), 8oz, (upholstery, vinyl and leather paints) & 13.3oz (outdoor/waterproof fabric paint). There is no hard and fast rule on how much a can will cover, as you will get different results dependent on the type and absorbency of the material, the colour of both your project and the dye, and obviously the type of dye… So to make it easier, you will see a handy calculator below. Both “soft fabric paint” and “upholstery paint” share the same formula and leave the same soft, permanent finish. The only difference is the size of the spray can and the range colours available. Upholstery paint will cover around 3.5 times more fabric than a smaller “soft fabric paint” spray can.
Spray Paint Calculator
The calculator can help you find out how much you need. Please note: Figures are only estimates for one coat only, if you are dying a darker or very absorbent fabric then you may need several coats. Not yet compatible with the smaller 2.5oz cans or the outdoor range.
Simply Spray: Upholstery Dye
One can of Upholstery Paint will cover approximately 17 square feet (1.5 square meters). You must test your fabric to see how absorbent the material is as different fabrics could use more or less of the paint. To cover the upholstery of a sofa, you are likely to require 6 upholstery spray paint cans, however this is of course dependent on the size of your sofa and how absorbent the material is. Because upholstery is essentially a fabric, it’s exceptionally difficult to spray over a dark colour with a lighter colour, so, unlike our leather and vinyl sprays, we advise against going from dark colours to light.
Simply Spray: Fabric Paint
Depending on its use, one can of Simply Spray Fabric Paint should cover approximately 5-6 square feet evenly (around 0.5 square metres). Please ensure you test your fabric first to see how absorbent the material is as different fabrics could use more or less of the paint. When tie-dying shirts, you can cover between two and four adult large T-shirts (front and back).
Simply Spray: Vinyl & Leather Paints
Just 1 bottle of our leather or vinyl spray should comfortably cover approximately 2 square meters. That’s two office chairs, a recliner or even a single leather armchair. The multi-pack (3 sprays, 1 primer) should cover a three seater sofa, a small suite, or a car interior. However it very much depends on the overall area you are covering, so if you’re not too sure, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please note: If you want to completely change the colour of a much darker leather or vinyl to a lighter colour, you may require more coats.
Simply Spray: Outdoor Fabric Paint
Outdoor spray paints come in the biggest can available, and should cover 2.5 square meters. It leaves a waterproof, weather-resistant, UV-resistant layer, leaving a nylon-like feel to your project. 1-2 can’s should do a recliner, 2-3 a small sofa.
Your project: Remove loose dirt, flaking material or anything you believe may interrupt your work. Make sure the surface is clean (no dirt or grease) and dry. If it is a garment or removable textile, it may be easier to wash or wipe clean first.
Your work-area: Our spray paints and dyes will stain/mark carpets, clothes and some other items, so it is advised to use a dust sheet, newspaper, magazines, cardboard or anything else you can get your hands on to protect anything you think might get damaged. Remember, these are dyes and therefore liquid, so waterproof / non-absorbent dust-sheets and plastic sheets will work best. The spray’s tend to be quite focused and are relatively easy to control with very little in the way of air particulates, but it always pays to be cautious.
The can: Shake can well before using, this helps to ensure the dye is evenly mixed and ready, then tear off the blue safety tab at the top.
Practice: Try it out on a scrap material or inconspicuous area.
Paint Application: Hold can 6 to 8 inches away from project and begin spraying maintaining an even pressure on the trigger, do not pump. Spray thin layers of paint to cover project. Sometimes you may need a few layers, especially when spraying over darker colours, to get good even cover allow 30 minutes between coats and repeat until desired colour is achieved.
Primer Application: Applies to vinyl & leather dye only. Spray onto you’re the surface and rub into hard to reach areas with a cloth. Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes. Never re-apply primer, especially over the colour, as it will cause issues with the finish.
Tips & Tricks: If it comes out in a stream or fits and spurts, try shaking and use different angles. Don’t be shy to get your hands dirty, it’s often more effective to rub it in with your hands, you might see streaks to begin with, but they will soak in (and it washes off your skin very, very easily!)
Dry Time: The overall dry time will depend on temperature and level of humidity, so you can speed the process with a hairdryer to dry material. Typically allow 72 hours to dry before using or washing the sprayed item.
Issues: On rare occasions our spray paints may not perform, this is typically due to pressure as a result of using environmentally-friendly, food safe gas (unlike every other spray paint manufacturer), a clogged nozzle or an over exerted trigger. The dye is still likely to be functional, but you may need to see the below to fix the issue:
Clogged nozzle: Paint may build up in the nozzle after it is used. If this happens, pick off any excess dried paint from the nozzle opening, then flip the can upside down and spray to clear the passage. If this is not effective, let the spray stand upside-down in water to clear the nozzle, give it a wipe and try again.
Low pressure: You should still be able to achieve a stream from different angles, use a cloth or hands to rub the paint into your project.
Damaged trigger: If the trigger is pulled back too hard, it can “stick”. Simply put your index finger behind the blue trigger and push it forward. A “pop” or “click” should happen. If you push on the trigger a few times, it should start spraying again. If you are having serious issues with your canister, just give us a call on 01948 662629 and we will send a replacement.
Clean tip of nozzle between each use; for best results, use entire can in one application.
Nozzle: Rinse under warm water or tip can upside down and spray to clear nozzle. Let dry approximately one hour.
Clothing: Because our dyes are permanent, you will want to wash your clothes as soon as possible if you accidentally spray them. You should wash your clothes using liquid fabric softener because fabric softener breaks down the pigment in the paint. Unfortunately, there’s not a universal solution to remove permanent paint from clothing, all material is different. Keep washing them and put soap directly on the paint, scrub and hope!
Skin: You can wash it off your skin with regular soap, water and a little help from a cloth. It’s surprisingly easy and we have never had issues with skin cleaning or contact in the years of its use. If you wash your hands immediately after using, the paint should come off with little effort.
Unused Canisters: Store fabric paints in dry, cool conditions and protect from extreme temperatures.
Partially Used: If you are intending to store long-term, the spray will last longer upside-down in a bowl of water. If the trigger is not left in the correct “off position”, the gas will seep out, rendering the can unusable. When done using the can, make sure the trigger is fully pushed forward and in the off position, (even pulling lightly on the nozzle will allow the gas to seep out).
Recycling and the Environment
Leftover paint: Share leftover product with friends or take it to a Community RePaint collection point. Make a small difference to someone else at www.communityrepaint.org.uk
Empty canisters: Used paint canisters can be recycled as normal with the metal recycling at your home or premises. Do not attempt to remove the lid, or de-pressurise the can. More details can be found here: http://www.hse.gov.uk/waste/metals.htm
Will simply spray soft fabric paint work on all fabric?
Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint works best on 100% cotton light-coloured fabric. Test your fabric before beginning a project, be sure your material absorbs the paint. The best test is to spray your fabric with water and see how the water reacts. If the water absorbs into the fabric the paint should as well. If the water sits on top of the fabric, or beads, then the paint will do the same. You can try to rub the paint into the fabric, but it might take a few coats to get the right colour. Check the fabric after it is dry to make sure the paint fully absorbed. Do not use if paint does not absorb after normal drying time, 72 hours is recommended. Practice spraying before spraying directly onto your project. Paint is permanent. Keep in mind that Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint was created for apparel and small home decor projects. We recommend that you use Upholstery Fabric Spray for your large projects – it is a different formula than Simply Spray and can work on various materials.
What is the difference between simply spray soft fabric paint and stencil spray?
Stencil Spray feels like silkscreen when it is dry, Soft Fabric Paint is soft when dry. Stencil Spray is a thicker paint that should only be used for stencilling. It does not spray in a fine mist; it sprays thick, like a stream, and is meant to spray in a sweeping motion.
Will simply spray soft fabric paint work on furniture, like my sofa?
We recommend using Upholstery Fabric Paint rather than Soft Fabric Paint for furniture. Upholstery Fabric Paint is a different formula and more suitable for heavier fabrics.
Will simply spray soft fabric paint work on silk or polyester?
Soft Fabric Paint will work on silk, but it will not have the same effect as it will on cotton. It will run on silk or polyester, leaving a more tie-dyed look; it won’t be as controllable as it is on 100% cotton.
How do I stop the paint from leaking through to the back of the shirt?
The easiest way to avoid this is to spray in light layers and do not soak the shirt. Move the can slowly across the shirt while you are spraying and do not leave the can spraying in one spot. You can also put a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so there is a barrier between the layers.
How many shirts does one can of soft fabric paint make?
Depending on your use, Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint can make many projects; one can should cover about 5-6 sq feet. When tie-dying shirts, you can cover between two and four adult large T-shirts (front and back). Using multiple colors limits the amount of cans you will need.
Can you use stencils with soft fabric paint or just stencil spray?
Yes, you can stencil with Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint. It requires a little more skill than stenciling with Stencil Spray. The consistency of Stencil Spray is thicker; it sticks to the stencil allowing nice crisp edges. To stencil with Simply Spray, lightly spray stencil with spray glue and use an absorbent material to protect the rest of your project. After spraying, pat the top of the stencil off with a paper towel to avoid excess paint dripping. Be careful when pulling the stencil off.
