I picked up a vinyl that looks like burlap weave (dessert) on one side and soft white cushion on the other. I'm creating a variety of 40k terrain and buildings with bases that will match the vinyl color. But to take it a step further, and the main reason I chose vinyl was to add layers of paint and even texture to the vinyl. I figure I can spray it with a texture and then paint it with dry brush strokes and dabbing with a real sponge, like that faux thing I guess. Does this make any sense? I want to be able to roll up the dessert scene once done. Can paint be abused like this on materials like fabric and vinyl or will it just flake off? I'm thinking I should have picked up actual fabric for paint to soak into, but thought if I roughed up the vinyl it would do the same thing and it would lay smooth.
Maybe, thick felt would be better? Either way I think the idea is nothing new and works good for my needs, but I want it to look as good as possible.
unless you spray paint it with car pain, modelling paint will flake off. id go with the felt as it feels more like grass and if you like desert it looks nicer than vinyl. i personally would go for the felt.
