So after purchasing a flat sheet from IKEA, I began. The marker method with alcohol turned out VERY UGLY...so onto plan B.
I diluted with a bit of alcohol and water....and mixed the paint right on the fabric.
The red really was fun and just makes the thing pop! Oh, I think yes. I let it dry well and then ironed it...this is supposed to set the paint, but have you ever tried washing out acrylic paint? YEAH...it's a nightmare..
Fold over a scant quarter inch hem and iron, then fold again to make a narrow hem. IRON.
And then wrap it around your wire friend and admire.....
