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
