help with dyeing painter's canvas with diluted textile paint (before making a bag with it)?
hi! bit of a noob here :) i'm planning to make a messenger bag out of some painter's canvas, and i would like to dye the canvas grey before i begin. i'm wary of using powdered dyes and stuff like that so i did a little research and found out that diluted textile paint would work nicely. what are your thoughts on this? and do you have any other tips regarding the process? (like, how to manage the shrinkage, what tools i should use, what things i should avoid, etc.) i don't really need it to look super slick or anything (i think it would look interesting if the dye job is uneven) and i might try and wax the canvas afterwards. thank you in advance for your input if you do reply :)
