Paint type question.

Posted by formerly_known_as_di (My Page) on

I am attempted to paint a common vinyl pull down shade with decorator blocks. I have bought the color glazes for the pattern and a can of indoor/outdoor thick gloss sealer. Since the painted shade will take a beating just from going up and down and coiling, I'm reconsidering using oil paint instead with no sealer. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Hi di,
I don't know what decorator blocks are but I have painted on vinyl before. In fact I used the Paints for Plastic and it works great! No sealing needed. The paints can be brought at walmart and there made by Plaid.
