How do you dull the shine or deluster satin brocade fabric?

I bought several lanterns that are covered in a bright satin brocade. However, they are a little too bright in color and shiny for my home decor so I would like to know if anyone knows of a technique to dull the shine of the brocade a little. Maybe there is a stain to use to make them look a bit more aged or antique? Maybe I should just paint a wash on them?

Spray paint (lightly) would be more even.

The Bird King Festival
Every September in the Old Town of Le Puy-en-Velay, visitors can take in the Bird King Renaissance Festival (Fêtes Renaissance du Roi de l'Oiseau).

You will see musicians playing the tunes of the time through recorders and drums. Why not take part or watch the archery competition which pays tribute to the idea behind the festival, when the Bird King was decided by how many birds he shot with the bow and arrow.
