You will notice that this is not the only way to do a paint job. As long as you have access to the right tools the paint can be applied in a variety of ways, including by hand or with a brush.
To paint a fabric, you need two things:
1. A brush
2. A fabric softener
If you are making a pattern or artwork and want to paint only a small amount, a softener with a brush will suffice, while if you want to do more, an acrylic paint such as Liquid Linen can do the job.
The best fabric softener that we have seen at this time is The Softener Institute
Here are some other methods for painting fabric:
With a spray bottle you can paint on the fabric at will. The spray bottle is made to be used with fabric softeners. The bottles will give you the right amount of fabric for your area which will help in your overall finish.
You can also use acrylic paint on the piece. To paint on fabric, spray the fabric directly over the area you would like the design to be and let set for a few minutes. A brush is best because you don’t get as much out of the paint as you would if you use a brush.
You can paint the edges, in-between areas, or even a stripe on your fabric.
Using a brush can save you space, while using a brush on a softener helps create the best possible finish.

Absolutely! You can paint over fabric as well as you can on softener!
However, before you do, make sure to let any dye on the fabric set for at least a day or two before painting any areas of the piece!
Can I use a paintbrush with liquid linens or paint when doing a print?
For sure! There are certain paint and fabric softeners that will allow you to create some amazing prints and paintings, such as DMC Super Fine Liquid Linen.
How do I get the right color?

The other option is to use an acrylic paint that gives you the color that matches your
