Spray On Clothing, fabric in a can? Answered

Picture of

Anybody have ideas for DIY spray on/paint on clothing/fabric along the lines of fabrican? Even a fabric that would be impossible to wash or even take off the model without destroying would be a cool start. It could be used for visualizing dress sculptures or something along those lines, at the very least.

How about that hydro-seeder? It sprays out a pulpy mass of well, wood pulp and grass seed that coats an area, water for a few weeks and you have a nice lawn. Definitely a green option.

or those spray insulation foams, the fireproofing ones used on steel girders may contain asbestos though.

something like a fiberglass sprayer or chop gun.

the first one, you put some kind of liquid (in the real usage it would be gel coat or fiberglass resin) in it and then spray it. you could use a thin paper/fabric pulp as the liquid perhaps?

the second one, it sprays resin/glue/whathaveyou out of the gun, but also has a roll of fiberglass tape on a spool. it feeds that tape through a chopper that then dumps the chopped up bits of fiberglas into the stream of the resin/glue/whathaveyou. something like that, but not fiberglass (itchy) or resin (permanent)

What about "silly string" (spray string)?

Conctrust some sort of frame, then adorn with flourescent aerosol goodies.
