Work­ing out­side on a dust­sheet, spray one side with the gold spray paint and leave to dry. Spray in slow, steady lines across the fab­ric for even cov­er­age. Once dry, ap­ply a sec­ond coat and re­peat on the re­verse side. Fol­low seal­ing and treat­ment in­struc­tions on the can.

Once the gold paint is com­pletely dry, use tape to mark out a geo­met­ric pat­tern on the cush­ion cover (or use a sten­cil, like our star de­sign). Use a paint­brush and the black fab­ric paint to cover the lines in be­tween the mask­ing tape. Re­move the mask­ing tape then leave to dry.

Make sure the mask­ing tape is firmly stuck down onto the fab­ric to keep your lines clean and crisp
