    I spent the weekend making a replica X2 jacket from vinyl, problem is that now I need to paint it. I got some Krylon Fusion, and tried it on a scrap. But it did what it normally does to me, stay tackey and not dry(over 24 hours).
    Does anyone have any reccomendations about on what to use?

    I think auto shops should have paint for vinyl.

    Maybe the Krylon H2O paints would work?

    if you went to all that trouble why didnt you just buy the color vinyl you needed, cause vinyl paint or even dye gets kinda sticky when hot outside, i know cause ive seen plenty of vinyl paint/dye jobs on car interior also gives a paint smell...

    just seems like it woulda been easier to spend the extra cash for correct color vinyl. :confused

    Well, I'll look into those things. Thanks guys.

    Sal, I made Iceman's jacket from the end of X2. I'm hoping to have pics tomorrow night.

    Oldken, I actually got it for another project, then used the rest to make the jacket. Plus, it was the only suitable stuff my local fabric store had.
