    I'm looking for the best options on painting the nasty vinyl until I can afford a better one!

    Paint will not adhere to it very well.

    I used this for my son's costume and it took a looooooooong time to dry. I used brown Rustoleum paint cans. Maybe an enamel will work better but I would't count on it. Hope this helps.

    Thanks. I was thinking of trying Minwax. We'll see if it works...

    If the belt is vinyl you might consider using an auto upholstery type dye. You can purchase it normally at an auto paint or repair store, and it is availble in spray cans.

    Ive done it, like 7 years ago. I think I used brown made for plastic spray paint. I bet plastidip would work too.
