YES, Alvas Matlay and Alvas Marlay can be painted, if one of 3 types of paint are used:
- Standard Stage Paint: It’s water based and can wash off after use. It’s not a good choice if you will be rolling it up as peeling and flaking my occur.
- PVC Paint: It’s more permanent. Try the paint in a small area first, to see if it is the color and look that you are trying to achieve.
- Car Enamel: It’s very permanent. (Acrylic)
For information on application, drying time, etc, consult a paint supplier or theatrical supply company.
