Oh no!  What kinds of paper is the parasol made of?  Maybe bring them in to the art store and have them look at it and suggest a paint that may work better.  Or maybe cut the words out with a craft knife and glue them on.  Sorry I don’t have experience in this so…

Bump.

Sounds like the type of paper the parasol is made of is the problem.  I got my parasol from ebay and used a sharpie instead of paint.  Since you have one that you’re alrwady not happy with, I suggest testing paints/markers on that to see if the bleeding issue persists.  I was suprised that the sharpie didn’t bleed all over, did a small bit, but not enough to notice.  Here’s my post:
