Can I Paint My SoulPad®?

So the official line is: "No you cannot. Are you crazy? What are you thinking? Do you have any idea what paint can do to canvas and the treatments we have carefully added to it? How do you know how the paint will react when exposed to UV and the elements? Beside, shouldn't you be at work or planning your next camping trip?"

You see, we haven't tested the SoulPads in this way, so the risk is all yours. There are so many different types of paints on the market, and so many different types of artist with varying degrees of ability - it would be impossible for us to endorse the decoration of a SoulPad in this way. There is no doubt that too much of certain types of paint will affect the breathability considerably.

Ok, so with all that said, thankfully we do have plenty of creative customers out there who have simply ignored us and our dull disclaimers. They've painted their SoulPad® regardless. It does seem like a blank canvas after all. It's very tempting to take the risk, isn't it?

SoulPad® customer, Creative, Artist and Completely Lovely Person, Charity Dominic says:

6"We used Jacquard brand fabric paint, first outlining using stencils and a sharpie®, then painting on with foam brushes. We set the paint with a light ironing and its stayed on, no cracking whatsoever, through the most extreme heat, wind, rain, and alkaline dust. Seriously strong materials! *W00t!"

Please take a look at more images in the gallery to learn how Charity and Jack set about decorating their SoulPad®. Well done guys!


*The term w00t is a slang interjection used to express happiness or excitement, usually over the Internet. We're not afraid to tell you we had to look that one up. Thanks Wikipedia ;)
