steps

  1. Using one color, apply satin paint with a brush in small blocked sections at varying lengths; when brushing, follow the natural lines of the woven material.

  2. Repeat this with a second color, alternating paints.

  3. Continue to paint sections in more colors to achieve the color-blocked effect pictured above; let completely dry before using.
