    Whoah, painting on vinyl? What a simple but brilliant idea! I really dig it. Think I might like to try my own hand at that.

    Go for it, but the only thing I found to "stick" is oil based paint markers.

    For glossy surfaces use a primer out there called Gripper made by glidden or krylon's spraycan primer for glossy surfaces. There is probably other products out there too that i don't know of. if you get the Gripper primer have the store add a drop or 2 of black tint to it and make them mix it. It should be free of charge.
    Dark colors that you paint on it will come out a lot better and require less coats with a black tinted primer (gray).

    great ideas though. a great way to make use of stuff that would just fill up landfill space.

    no problem.

    painting things without using a primer is not something i could ever recommend if you want to keep the thing for a long time. eventually the paint will just chip away and look bad.

    using a primer gives the paint you use on top of it something to grab hold of and stick to for quite a long time.

    I'm still very new to paint and never took a art class, so I'm learning as I go.
    Some other things I have done.
