Black Muslin Non Flame Retardant (NFR) 100% cotton


Available widths and prices. Black NFR Muslin fabric (Non Fire Retardant)

Black Muslin NFR, is a plain, tightly woven fabric used for painted stage cycloramas, painted theater backdrops, scenery flats and custom painted production decor. This economical wide fabric is available in light weight, medium weight and heavy weight.
Our Heavy Weight-Movie Weight Muslin 126" wide has a denser weave that make it ideal for durable movie flats and backdrops.
When painting on a piece of black Muslin fabric, the FR chemicals can be added to the paint, or the painted fabric can be sprayed with a FR chemical.

Tip: It is recommended to use NFR Muslin when painting on a scenery flat or backdrop, since FR muslin is chemically treated to be flame retardant and the moisture in the paint may cause the FR chemical to leach to the surface causing fabric discoloration. Flame Retardant chemicals can be added to the paint, or the painted fabric can be sprayed with a FR chemical to comply with local fire codes.
Painting on the fabric may cause shrinkage. For that reason it is highly recommended that allowances are made to cover for any shrinkage caused during the painting process.
Additionally, we recommend the fabric is stretched and fastened to a frame prior to painting on it so to minimize shrinkage.

Notes: Since bleached Muslin NFR is not pre-washed its width may vary a few inches.
N.F.R. Black Muslin can be purchased in cut yardages or by the bolt.
