Just came across this method, ignore it if you know it already.

That's impressive! But would suggest wearing hygiene gloves (available at most chemists) at the painting stage whether using brush or spray!

Being right is one thing, but being true is quite another.

Didn’t have any tissues available but found an alternative………now all my tarpaulins have “Now wash your hands” printed across them….. :mrgreen:

This one was made out of a sheet of newspaper and painted with black powder paint. The painting made it sag quite realistically. It was meant to be temporary, but it's still in use decades later :) .

Result!

When I watched that youtube, another one popped up, explaining the same method. But it all works fine. I used toilet paper, and when I sprayed the glue on, it all turned puffy, and I figured it was going to look more like an eiderdown than a tarp. But it shrank in the sun.

Voila!
