I'm tempted to use pvc / vinyl in a future project (as psuedo scales for a kind of partial, not a fullsuit).
What are the do's and don'ts to be aware of when using pvc/vinyl aside from the fact that it doesn't breath?
Stuff like, can you paint it? (If so with what? Does it require a sealer?)
Is it hard to clean?
Do you recommend an alternative that doesn't require doing a scaly texture by hand? (I don't own and airbrush and I'm not that confident with drybrush or paintbrush and I don't trust my hand with markers on fabric.)
And stuff like that.
