I am in favor of covering with some durable camo netting.

I have an old pop up that while still structurally sound, turned a washed-out light pink. I thought about painting it but I was worried that the paint would further deteriorate the fabric. As suggested above I covered it with military camo netting and it has worked well.

Here's a picture of mine after I painted it. I left it set up in my back yard for a couple of weeks to dry and air out...

Mine has been pink for at least 3 seasons and it has not made a bit of difference. Game is used to it.

Back when I lived in the great UP, we hunted on the ground, up against a tree, with bright orange jackets, hats, etc and saw many a' bucks. I don't think a faded blind will effect the game as long as the wind is right and it has been in place before the season.

Sharpies,.......lots and lots of Sharpies! Okay, seriously, what about a textile dye, like RIT? Brush it, smear it, or splatter it on.
