Fabric Paint


A timeless classic. Resurrect your faded fabrics with our ebony black fabric paint.


Time to unleash the fab factor with our Black Fabric Paint

Got something that's feeling a little unloved? All-in-one Fabricoat fabric paint helps you revive pretty much anything, from sofas and cushions to curtains and car interiors. Acting like a fabric dye, it's extremely easy to use, highly durable and a cost effective way to bring fabric back to life.

Fabricoat comes in a range of 16 on-trend and classic colours. The colours are strong and vibrant and won't fade or rub off after they've dried. Add your own unique personality and style to your surroundings.

Once dry, the fabric will remain soft and flexible - it won't make the material go hard or stiff - and it will provide a long-lasting finish that you'll enjoy for years.

Just so you know...

If you're using the paint to change the colour of fabric, always ensure the fabric is a lighter colour than the paint you decide to use. Can't find the colour you desire? Then try mixing the colours to your preferred shade or use our White Mixing Fabricoat paint to lighten other colours. As it dries, do brush the surface a few times to prevent any fibres sticking together.

If your fabric has a pile, such as velvet, faux-suede, chenille, draylon or microfibre, we recommend ordering double the quantities of fabric paint. This is because there's lots more surface area to cover on these types of fabric.

Always test the fabric for water absorbency first. If it's absorbent, Fabricoat will work.

Full instructions are provided on in our How To section and on the product label.

Frequently Asked Questions

A. Yes, Fabricoat will work on any fabric provided it's absorbent. To test absorbency, drop some water onto the fabric and see if it soaks in. If it does, it is absorbent, and Fabricoat will work. We’d advise that for fabrics with a pile, you order double the amount of fabric paint as there's more surface area to cover.

A. 250ml will cover a dining chair or car seat, 500ml will paint an armchair, and 1 litre will be enough to transform a three-seater sofa. However, if your fabric has a pile (like velvet, faux-suede, chenille, draylon or microfibre), you will need to use more product as there’s much more surface area to cover. We suggest ordering double the above quantities of fabric paint for these fabric types.

A. No, as long as you brush the fabric with a Soft Bristle Brush during and after painting it should not feel any different. Fabricoat is designed to dry with a soft, flexible finish without changing how the fabric feels. 

A. If you want to change the colour of an item, we recommend you always use a darker paint than the original colour.  If you do wish to transform your item to a lighter colour, the original darker colour is likely to show through. You can use our White Fabricoat as a base paint, but we suggest you always test a corner of the fabric first to guarantee this will work. 

A. Sofas, chairs, lampshades, blinds, headboards and car interiors, but the possibilities are endless. Check out our Inspire page or socials to see what our community have been painting.

A. Yes, it is. Fabricoat takes 24 hours to become touch-dry and can be used after that, but we’d advise waiting a full seven days to allow the colour to fully cure. Once it’s fully cured, the material can be washed or cleaned as normal. Once dry, it will not rub off onto your clothes or other items.
