I second this. I always use duplicolor on stuff like that (and everything else for that matter) and it's always been great.

That Work Was Starting To Get A lot Of Use Like 10 years Ago When I was In School Most Of those People Who Use It A lot Never Knew What It Ment Then Its Kinda Like Saying Caliente Which Means Hot But If You Say It To A Female You Might Get Lucky ! Or Slapped ! Depends On How You Say It . Its Kinda Got The Double Meaning.

Geez I hate it when someone says Kinky (no offense)! Don't know why, probably cause some loser in school said it a lot....

... I'm inclined to ask why you know that?

Ex girlfriend was a bit kinky and liked to wear liquid latex instead of a shirt.

Got mine at the craft store, in the same aisle as the plaster. They also sell it at "adult stores", near the S&M stuff.

One more thing...I've never used liquid latex before...will it change the texture/color of the paint? I ask because the sleeves are not attached to the trenchcoat (like the DCU Question), so I don't want the sleeves to look different than the rest of the jacket...

Hmm...I guess it'll be a trial by error deal and just see which works the best! Thanks for the tips

I've had luck with duplicolor spray vinyl dye for fabrics on things like capes. You can get it at auto shops.

Where would one find liquid latex anyways? I can't seem to track it down anywhere.

Add a few drops of liquid latex to the paint. This will allow it to flex with the vinyl. Otherwise you could alway dye it instead of painting.
