Protecting Painted Fabric

Category Advice

I recently decorated a white feather comforter with my grandchildren by letting them stamp their hand and foot prints all over it with paint. The problem now is that I used your basic water based paint, not fabric paint. What can I treat it or coat it with to protect the paint? Would "Stain Guard" work? I love the comforter, however I want to be able to use it without worrying about getting it dirty?

Check in your craft aisle of your local Walmart store or other similar type of store. I know there is a spray you can buy to protect this. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of it Good Luck

Does anyone know of a spray or brush on additive that one can apply to fabric painted items to help protect the paint longer? I am looking for something for items that will not see the washing machine often, such as painted totes. Thanks!

I don't know of anything specific, but Aleene's and Beacon both have lots and lots of glues and fixatives. Look at their websites online.
