Get more life out of fur or faux fur by painting on it. If a piece of a fur is damaged or simply not the color you want, change it with paint. And, you don't have to stick to the original color of the fur. Paint the fur colors that aren't found in nature like pink or blue for a real one of a kind look.
Things You'll Need
- Acrylic spray paint
- Fine brush
Spread newspaper over your workspace in a well ventilated area or outside. Lay your fur out on the newspaper, fur side up.
Spray the fur with acrylic spray paint. Do a test spray off the fur first to prevent clumps and an uneven spray, then move the spray across the fur's surface. Use even strokes and spray in the direction the fur grows, and then against it. Avoid applying too much paint. Spray lightly, so the fur doesn't clump together.
Brush the fur with a fine brush, spreading the paint evenly through the fur. Brush in every direction to make sure it's covering deep to the roots.
Spray the fur again as you did in step 2. Brush and allow it to completely dry before moving it. If you move it too soon, the fur might stick together.
