I'm trying to make a robot costume for Halloween. I know this is not cake related, but thought someone may have experience with spray painting clothes. I saw a website that suggests spray painting a gray sweat suit with silver paint. Does it absorb into the fabric nicely, or does it flake? If it flakes, I don't want any part of it. I also don't want to ruin a good sweat suit by experimenting. Thanks!!

Not sure but I think they make fabric spray paint.....I would go to a fabric store and tell them what you want to do, they should have good advice.

I really have used regular food coloring to do t-shirts. You all know how food coloring can stain your cloths! Well it makes pretty flowers using an airbrush then ironing the shirt to 'set' the color. I have also used it to match the design on a cake for the birthday child. Best to wash in cold water....yes....it does fade a bit after a while but is still pretty!
