hello everyone

i was thinking i'd stencil some designs onto a pvc shower curtain but i have no idea what kind of paint to use.

I'm guessing it will have to endure a fair bit of folding, and moisture...

any ideas will be much appreciated

I don't know about household paints etc but I do know there's a particular type of paint used by screenprinters.  It's Vinyl paint.. made of vinyl, designed to stick to vinyl=pvc.  Will stand up to washing etc.  Not yet used it, but you could try contacting some print suppliers and asking them if they've got vinyl paint. You probably won't get under a kilo of the stuff, but it's not super expensive.  By the way, vinyl is carcinogenic and very smelly and the production of it is like, banned in some european countries or something.  Not that that will stop me from using vinyl paint when I get around to it, I'll ventilate the hell out of my laundry-studio Wink  Good luck!!

i have never tried this, so if it doesn't work don't hate me. but i've been seeing millions of commercials for that krylon fusion spray paint for plastic. vinyl seems to be much like plastic and i'm guessing that since it's made for outdoors it wouldn't wash away. if you do decide to try it, let me know if it works, cause i could have fun w/ that one!

Looking to do a personal swap for any boyish nursery print flannels! I can send polymer clay charms, purses, paper crafts, microscope slide pendant kit, and a lot more.
