Painting shanty canvas

Discussion in 'Hard Water Discussions' started by peple of the perch, Dec 8, 2008.

  1. I bought a used shanty, it was in great condition but the guy I bought it from painted all over it, I would like to paint over that and turn it back to black, Is ther a certain type of paint I should use or should I just get some black paint and go over the old stuff.
  2. Get DYE not Paint... JoAnn Fabric Stores, Michaels, Etc.

  3. If the paint is still in decent shape, not flaking, Krylon spray paint should work. If it is flaking, take a scrup brush and get all the loose stuff off, then try the Krylon.

    Any idea why it was painted in the first place ?
