Product Review: Simply Spray Soft Fabric Paint


As I've said before, I am always on the lookout for a new product to try or a new crafting technique to master. One of my projects this month is making some new, reusable shopping bags to replace the ones we have been using for about the last ten years that are starting to show their age. I chose to make my bags from burlap because it is a sturdy, natural fabric I've never used before and wanted to try something new.









Since burlap is a fairly plain looking fabric, I decided to see if I could paint on it to add some flare. After browsing the different types of fabric paints at the store, I decided to give Simply Spray a try. My plan was to use the paint with a stencil to decorate my fabric.

I decided to paint a piece of sample fabric to see how this stuff works. I used burlap because it is what I will be using for my shopping bags, but this paint can be used on other types of fabric as well. The instructions recommend using it on light colored, 100% cotton fabric.



Before using any product for the first time, make sure to read all the package directions.

I started out with a scrap of burlap. I washed it, dried it, carefully cut it, and used a zig zag stitch around the edge to prevent it from unraveling.









Next, I spread out a few layers of newspaper to protect my work surface and set my fabric on it.









I made my own stencil of a tree with my Silhouette Cameo, but there are probably tons of cool stencils available at your local craft and hobby store.

I set the stencil on the fabric. If I had been using this on a real project instead of just a sample I would have covered the outer edges of my stencil to protect the fabric.






It's time to paint. The Simply Spray works just like a can of spray paint. You shake it to mix the paint. Then, depress the button and paint sprays out.

I sprayed over the stencil.







Finally, I removed the stencil and let the paint dry. It was dry to the touch in less than an hour. The directions recommend you wait 72 hours before washing it.









Product Review

Overall I liked this product. Simply Spray was an easy to use spray fabric paint. I think it would be great for decorating t-shirts or countless other projects.

Pros:
  • Simply Spray is flexible after it is applied to the fabric.
  • It's easy to control the the intensity of the color.
  • It was quicker to paint over a stencil with Simply Spray than using a traditional sponge method.
  • It's non toxic and non flammable.
  • The Simply Spray does not have a strong odor when you are applying it.
  • The nozzle sprayed an adequate amount of paint and did not seem to clog, however you should clean the nozzle between uses.
  • There are a variety of colors available.
  • You could probably make multiple small projects with one can of paint because a little goes a long way.
Cons:
  • Although this is a permanent paint, the color faded slightly after washing. However this could have been caused by the type of fabric I used. Burlap is notorious for shedding.
 I look forward to using this product again in the future. I think it has a lot of creative potential.
