If you haven’t yet tried using Chalk Paint® to colour fabric, do. It’s simple and really straightforward – you just need cold water and Paint – no fixatives or salt, no faffing around.
Pour your Paint into an old tub – I use metal, but you can use plastic although you’ll need to take care to clean it out afterwards. When I’m in my house in Normandy, I do this outside so that any spills won’t matter, but do be careful otherwise.
Add the water, and mix gently but thoroughly. You’re looking for a ratio of around one part paint, to 20 parts water but, of course, you can play around with this for more or less intense gradations of colour!
Now, add your fabric and make sure it is fully immersed.
Leave it to soak for around half an hour.
The fabric will need to be fully dry before you use it but once dry, you can machine wash as normal.
And here they are, the team (with a few missing) in their pink t-shirts!
