Had contact with a paint expert on this item (PVC gives bad paint adhesion. Can you suggest type of paint to be used for flexible rubbery PVC). This was his reply:
"As for painting on flexible PVC you would need to find a good commercial primer that is made for these type of surfaces. I am not sure which brands or companies are available in your country, but in the US several of the larger brands of paint have primers that are suitable on PVC. Another suggestion would be companies that sell products for painting flexible, plastic automobile parts, like bumpers. These might work well. As with anything, test any products to see if they are suitable before using them in a permanent piece of art."
