    Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric Paint?

    Anybody know if this is save for leather seats? I want to make my interior black (because I plan on painting the car black eventually) but I'm not sure about the seats. I've used it on cloth seats before with no problems.

    ive never used duplicolor products for dye work, only SEMS which is available at CMK in clearwater. dying the panels is no big deal as long as they are prepped right and primed 1st. as for the seats, they can be done but its only a matter of time before the paint starts to crack, peel and show the true color underneath, but still, periodic touchups with a spray can is still cheaper than having the seats reupholstered

    Post DupliColor on Vinyl

    I used the duplicolor vinyl paint on my leather seats in my mitsubishi when I had it, and it did not do too well. I let it dry for two days, but when I got in it, the paint just rubbed off. I think it kind of coats it like rubber, it doesnt sink in and color into the fiber, but just coats it. I wouldnt reccommend using it on leather because it won't last long.


    Hope this helps!

    Based on my experience, preparation is more important than application. I try to clean with mineral spirits,and then ammonia cleaner. So far adhesion is great.
    And many people using this for their cars,all I can say that it is very effective.
    How to color your fabric, yarn, fiber, or clothes with dyeing fabric paint.

    why the fuck does this thread get bumped every year. Fucking gravediggers.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.
