Step 1: Measure & Cut

Measure and cut your placemats to your desired dimensions. My placemats will be 14 by 20 inches.

Clean up any frayed edges.

Step 2: Applying The Paint

Apply a couple coats of the metallic spray. Once the paint is dry, flip the placemats over and apply a couple coats to the other side. Let it dry completely, then apply clear coat to both sides.

Are Phifertex fabric placemats water repellent or water proof? before or after spraying?

BEST ANSWER: The fabric is like a mesh so water will get through, but the actual fabric itself will not absorb water because it is vinyl coated.
