painting capes "white"

Start with white wash and build the white up? the cape is red now. Thoughts and tips I might if missed? It's been washed and dried.

I suggest mixing your paint with white glue, it's already white and it will help your paint be much more bendable and not chip off!
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

Really? Hey, thanks! What ratio? 60/40?

Just experimant and see what works for you(also be sure to wash your brush and not let the mixture dry in or it WILL ruin your brush!!!)

Or instead of risking a brush, you could get some white latex paint and use that.

Anyone else used latex paint on bendable figure parts? Sounds like a great idea, but never used it on any customs before. Feedback people.

SirMWK, do you have pics of what you have done using latex paint?

Nah man not off hand. I may have some stored on my other computer somewhere but not on this one. A few years ago, I painted a fake head for a guy who runs a haunted house with latex paint and it was rubbery plastic so I'd say it would work on capes.
