I have an awning on the side on my 4wd. The awning is made from green rip stop canvas. I would like to paint the topside of the awning with a silver reflective paint. Can anyone offer advise as to the type/s of paint/s that maybe available for this purposed.

Thanks in advance.

I know some people that I could ask...But they do tend to be slow with answers.

Here is one place to start - http://www.simplyspray.com.au/

I am only guessing here...Maybe plaspak would be flexible enough. Have a look for a Dulux Trade Centre near you and ask them.

G'day Rod
Recently asked about paint to do the reg number on my zodiac. The answer was "tautflex". Tautflex pdf. Uses include canvas. It is tintable but don't know if it comes in the colour you are after but pdf does say the tint range is "unlimited".

Cheers
Mark

Rod, you'd need a rubberised or plasticised flexible paint. Maybe Plasti Dip? It comes in silver. The image gallery shows clothing sprayed with Plasti Dip.

Hi Rod
Solver makes a vinyl paint, see them first, it's very flexible & expensive but highly recommend it. Only problem is, it takes forever to completely dry, something to think about if you are rolling it up.
