Hey guys, I've been trying to find a reasonable way to paint the nylon 12 white strong and flexible, and many of the topics here have been interesting, however, they all are for very small pieces.

I'm working on a large piece, and by that I mean, 16 inches across, by nine inches, by three. Unfortunately I cant dip this sized object it Rit Dye cost effectively, and I wouldn't want to brush paint it as I want an even coat.

So far, I was thinking of just lightly sanding, then primering with many light light coats of spray paint, followed by many light light coats of black paint. I don't know if there is a specific kind of spray paint that would work better than others.

Any advice helps, I'm open to all the different suggestions. Thanks!
