Hey all,

I've recently painted my mask in a winter camo style, and I used a Rust-oleum plastic paint. It turned out really nice (I'll post some pics soon) but I noticed that it tended to flake off pretty easily. This works for me, because I'm trying to make it look a little bit weathered and all, but for the next mask that I paint I want to make sure that it doesn't flake too much...

What kind of paint is best for painting masks? Does it really matter what kind of paint I use, or should I just make sure that it sits still for a while to really dry?

Thanks in advance!

Even with a flex agent most masks will flake or peel when painted.

Edit: Almost forgot your "welcome to the forum." greeting. :)
