Howdy, all. I know this has been asked and answered a few times, but I can't find some of the specifics. I've PM'd a few people that I have dealt with on other stuff, but seems my PMs are getting lost in the masses, not getting through, or just being ignored (kinda hope it ain't the latter since I don't think I've done anything to tic anyone off here).
I just got a set of rubber knees (think they're FP/SR since they appear to have fettprides logo on the back). I need to paint them for my custom Mando, but not sure what to use on the rubber to make it stick. I found a few old posts that mentioned Pactra paints for this, but none seem to mention which type. The guy at the hobby shop here told me that, since Pactra was bought out by Testers, there are several types of it (enamel, laquer, acrylic, and one more I can't remember the name of). Is one of these better than the others for rubber? Or are the old threads all pointing to the old Pactra from before the Testers take over? Is there something newer on the market that would be better and hasn't been mentioned before?
I kicked around the idea of using the vinyl spray color I use to color different kinds of vinyl I make costumes out of (and also works great on vinyl tubing as a primer for standard spay paints, by the way). But I've never used it on rubber before, so don't know how it will work.
Any hints or tricks of the trade anyone minds sharing with me on this?
