I'd like to know what I should use to paint my white neckband made from Nylon 12, strong & flexible ? I'd like a material which is not dangerous for the body as the product will go on my skin (neck).
Thanks for your help.
Charlotte

I prefer waterbased acrylc colors.

Brands like Vallejo, Americana or Citadel.

Some of them are also available in spray cans (in case you don't want apply the colors with a brush).

Hello! I am also wondering what types of paints would be best for nylon. Also, If I were to dye a nylon piece with RIT dye then paint over the dyed portion with an acrylic paint would the color of the paint look strange? Does anyone have any more examples of pieces they painted?
