Painting Oratex

Post by ROB. THOMASSON » Mon May 09, 2022 8:18 am

Has anyone any experience of painting over Oratex? I want to add some stripes to my Escapade and was wondering about adhesion and flex of the fabric. I know there is Oratex paint but I have only found it in model aircraft quantities

Vinyl works very well for stripes and decals over Oratex.
There are plenty of places that will do the design and cutting and supply on a carrier tape.
I got some off the shelf ones from a custom car supplier which worked very well.
