    Hello fellow creatives!

    Does anyone have experience with painting on Textilene? It is a weatherproofing PVC-coated polyester mesh. I get the feeling it’s pretty similar to a window screen. We plan to do an outdoor show this season (new to me!) due to COVID and they are talking about using Textilene to wrap the speaker towers. They want them to look like brick, whether that means printing or painting.

    A few things to note. These wraps will be removed, reinstalled, and handled many times over the course of our production. Any paint treatment has to survive this in addition to a SoCal summer in full sun. I doubt we will get much rain, but it’s always possible. They also want the wraps to last and be reused year after year.

    Now, at this point I think the smartest safest option is printing but WHAT IF? I just want to know how I might go about painting these? What will stick? What will last? What will resist fading and a rare SoCal downpour?

    Also please let me know if you have any tips/tricks/products you wish you knew about when you first started painting outdoor spaces!

     

    Thank you!

    I don’t have answers but I’m curious to know what your findings are!

     

    Best, Allison
