Re: Acrylic Paint on Jersey Knit Bedsheet

There is no obvious answer! If the jersey is a little-bit “see-through,” then you don’t want to make it look more opaque, which would imply some kind of net for a backing. On the other hand, if it’s heavy, no net that I can think of would do the job. I have treated old silk flags by attaching them to a polyester net, but this may be too heavy for that. There’s really no way to come up with a treatment without seeing it. Don’t know if a photo would provide enough info. If it’s a regular knit fabric then any kind of resinous coating would change its appearance. BTW, the stretchiness of knit isn’t due to elastic; it’s due to the stitch. (Feel free to send me a photo.)
