Question about Sly Profit

I have a lime green/black Sly Profit mask that the green is starting to flake off, and I'm looking at repainting it, but I'm going to want to do the flex bottom a different color. I want something that is never going to chip or fade, and flex with the mask without cracking. I know that I'm probably going to have to dye it as opposed to painting, but does anyone know if the flex bottom is latex, vinyl, or rubber based, or know how I can do this? Thanks in advance!

The easiest way to do it is first put lots of coats of flat paint. Flat paint acts like a primer, if you dont know what a primer is, its basically something easier for the final layers to grip and stop flaking.

I just did a custom paint job around the eyes of my dye i4, and i did 2-3 coats of black flat paint, then did my gloss paint can, and ive had it for a good long time and im still not seeing flakes.
Of course, at some point, its going to fade or flake, but doing this will definitely help.

Dupli color fabric and vinyl paint is probably your best bet for the flexibility.
