    Hello,

    I am a French fan of the Transformers. Please excuse my poor English because I use the Google translator.

    I would paint some of my robots with Enamel. The problem is that this painting does not bind to the rubber (it does not dry and it sticks).

    Should we make a sub-layer with a dedicated product?

    Note: Please answer with short sentences and no spelling errors, otherwise Google will not translate your answers correctly.

    Enamel cannot stick on the rubber. You should try acrylic laquer paint, make sure that you clean and prime the surface first. Hope this can help.

    Yes, try different types of paint. Or use a base layer.

    Acrylic sounds like a good option to me too, namely the kind that tends to remain soft afterwards, just like rubber.

    Thank you.

    As I understand, I use acrylic paint as an undercoat. Correct?

    I then paint over with Enamel (gold, silver or other color)?

    How to clean the Enamel already on my rubber parts?
