***Picture update***I'm up in the air....someone should talk me out of this!

Post by Britty on Mon May 14, 2012 11:46 pm

So, I think I may have thought of something genius or full of stupidity, and I am on the fence.

I may want to paint my canvas tent topper?

I'm throwing ideas around in my head now...I'm leaning towards yes, but I have a two day event this weekend which means I will have four days to do this....hmmm.

What do you think?

Anybody ever heard of doing something like this? I mean it is canvas...right? I have plenty of experience painting on canvas. Or is it canvas? It is definitely canvas-like...

Will it change the colour of the light coming through and effect how your colours look?

Lots of people have done it so no, you're not crazy! I painted on mine... but just wording. I plan on painting the back wall and two half side walls eventually.

I don't think it would. It is a deep tan color now, and barely any light gets through now. It is just really risky. If I hate it I will have to buy a new tent :/ haha

I just want to do the top, because it is really bland. Something fun with my business name across the sides, but I only have four days. Seeing everyone's pretty festival setups has me inspired!

Since it isn't a white tent, and therefore won't comply with those shows that require a white tent, I say go for it. You might just limit yourself to one small area since you have a show coming up. If your try to do too much too quickly you might find yourself with something you don't like and not enough time to fix it. But if you don't like it, you can always paint over it again, provided you allow yourself the time to do so.

Go for it! High quality tube acrylics should bond with the canvas nicely. You can also use FLAT latex house paint, but I am not sure how that will hold up to repeat exposure to elements.

I'm going to buy some canvas that I can attach velcro to & hang it up. This way it's interchangeable.

Looks great! Is that your top, or did you go w/ the canvas idea?

I've thought of painting my tent, but I know tents blow away & rip, so I want something I easy to change out, but I don't have to replace if my tent dies.
