I painted the suit with white and black acrylics but the paint cracks when you wear it and I needed to repaint it every time I wore it.. So now that it has so many layers of paint the suit doesn't stretch much and it's very difficult to get into. I've heard of people dying their suits but I don't see how you can get such straight lines with dye. The fused shadow was spray painted with different shades of gray and then I took a paint brush with dark gray acrylic paint and added some shading around all the designs.
I used regular acrylic paint mixed with fabric paint medium. Unfortunately the paint cracks and the black and white rub off on each other so I have to repaint it every time I wear it.. Maybe one day I'll figure out a better way
