1. Determine where you will hang your canvas for painting, preferably somewhere outside. Protect surfaces from overspray with plastic sheeting. Use clips or clamps to hang up both canvas and plastic drop cloth.
2. Put on protective rubber gloves. Fill your spray bottle with water and add the fabric dye. (A little dye can go a long way.) Shake the bottle to mix the color. Test the color saturation on scrap fabric.
Tip: Two spray bottles were used in this example; one that had a mist setting and another that had a direct stream. For lighter color, shoot on the mist setting and for darker hues, shoot with a concentrated stream.
