We are often asked recommendations for painting vinyl banners - with so many one use event banners printed, they can be a great surface to repurpose with spray paint, yet can be very frustrating if your paint doesn't stick.
Some spray paint solvents seem to react with the vinyl, either peeling off very easily, or never truly drying - making a huge sticky mess.
We have put our paints to the test and have excellent results with Sugar Artist Acrylic spray paint. This spray paint contains a solvent made from sugar cane alcohol, while most of our paints use acetone based solvents. In our tests Sugar has dried perfectly and creates a surprisingly strong bond to the flexible vinyl. Coming back to our samples several months later and bending and scratching the surface shows no wear and tear.
