Hello! Advice Needed for Painting Spandex


New Member
Hello friends!

I am a fairly novice costume maker and seeking advice. I am recreating the Northern Lights in costume-form. The base of the costumes are a holographic spandex (see below - the suits will be black, not white) and I will be painting with Jacquard Lumiere & Neopaque. Any advice on painting on this type of fabric and ideas on how to achieve this spacey, ethereal type of look are much appreciated!
