Sealer for Art Fair Canopy

Recommended Posts

I haven't tried this myself, but I hear that lots of artists use sealers made for camping tents. It's not expensive and very effective when applied once a year. You can also pack a roll of white duct tape for temporary patches during a show.

I'd be interested in that too, Mark.

How would it be applied, spray, brush? Is there any flaking or cracking? DO you apply it to the outside of the canopy, inside, or both?

Thanks!

I sprayed it to the outside-on a warm day after washing it a few days before lightly with a hose.

I do my two boat covers with it ever 3 years the same way

You should most likely test it on a small spot first

All fabrics are treated differently.

Thanks Mark. I think that's exactly what I need. I got into a massive downpour at a fair last year, but my booth was brand new. Many of my neighbors had old booths that were not sealed, and they were a mess. Some had water inside picture frames and lost a lot of work. My pots don't mind getting wet, but I do!
