    Painting Umbrellas To make a painted umbrella, cover a work surface with newspaper, open up a umbrella, and start painting. Be sure, however, that the paint is acrylic as other paints don't have the same waterproof qualities. Keep the umbrella stay open overnight to allow the paint to dry. What lovely way to personalize a gift! And affordable! KB

    I understand what you mean QueenPegasus, but I have read other people using acrylic to paint umbrellas, so I am hoping to get some feedback from those individuals.

    At this point, I would not say it's not salvageable, but I am looking into what else I could have used besides acrylics. I have read floral paint and shoe paints as suggestions, but no one who has actually used them.

    Or buy a new umbrella, a white one, and mist it with the colours you need; don't make the paint think and don't make a full layer of paint.
    So you're saying I should just remove?

    Okay, well if I did that or if I went ahead painted another umbrella, what kind of paint would recommend for the job?
     

    You won’t mind some April showers if you have a custom painted umbrella to use, and peekaboo designs provide a fun surprise since people can only see them when the umbrella is open. Get ready to puddle jump!
