Lucite and Emerald....

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

I am super giddy to be doing this post today.
Kinda cause I really like this product.
And it was all Sponsored by:

These babies are an easy to use sprayable fabric paint that you can use on virtually and fabric and it WILL NOT make it all stiff and scratchy.
Pretty great right?

They have a fairly good range of colors and products, but today I am demoing the 
In Noir.

I came across a pair of vintage lucite lamps for my daughters room and instantly knew they were coming home with us.

They needed shades, thus beginning the quest for a decent priced black shades.

If you have ever looked for a black shade you know that they are tough to come by and way more pricey.
I thought this would be the perfect time to try out this new fabric spray and see if it lived up to it's claims.

I picked a white shade but you could easily use a tan/beige one. Just pick a shape and texture you like.
First spray the inside of your shade with whatever color you want to peek out.
If you get any of the black fabric paint on the inside you can wipe it clean with a damp cloth before it dries.
The spray takes about 2 coats for good coverage, maybe a little more.
Put the shades on a poster board to dry as they will drip some.
In total it took about 1.5 cans for each shade.

You will notice that the finished shade is not exactly like the shades I started with...that is because I thought the ones I picked would work fine, but it turns out I didn't measure and they were a bit to overwhelming for the lamps.

I know.

Over all I am super pleased with their product and would recommend it.
I am going to be trying the stencil spray next.
Lets see if I can come up with a creative way to use it!
