  • Painting and Dyeing a Canvas Tent

    Paint and dyes can adversely affect the treatment and waterproofing of canvas and cannot be covered under warranty.

    That said, we know that many of you are artists and see canvas for what it is, so here is some advice:

    Use exterior latex flat paint diluted with 1/3 water. Two coats of diluted paint should flex with the canvas. More layers of paint may cause cracking, thus if you are painting on top of paint, a thinner paint may be required. Test out a small area to see how the paint absorbs and how the colors appear when dry. If too stiff, dilute further.

    Be sure to send us pictures of your creation!
