Then, what kind of paint do you use on a fabric lampshade?
Yes! Any acrylic or fabric paint works. I've used plain craft/acrylic paint and same paint with additive to make it compatible with fabric.
Secondly, can you paint a lampshade with acrylic paint? Acrylic paint will work on lampshades made of any material. Get paintbrushes of different widths if you want to make different sizes of stripes easily. Keep in mind that lighter colors will allow more light to shine through the lampshade.
Additionally, can you paint the inside of a lamp shade?
If not, use an appropriate kind of paint to paint the inside.By that I mean, if shade is plastic use a plastic paint, if paper use craft paint. Also be aware, painting the inside of the shade may cause the lamp to give out less light even with white or a light color being used.
Can you change the color of a lampshade?
Lampshades made of a natural fibers such as cotton, linen or silk can be dyed with fabric dye. Other fibers can still be changed, but you need to use paint. Lampshades that are dark, bold, bright or patterned can still be transformed, but results are best if dyed or painted with a darker shade than the original.
