Painting a vest?

I have looked and found many posts on painting a gun but not clothes. I have a digital vest but really want/need a OD vest to go with the rest of my gear since the digital doesnt match anything. I am saving money for something else so i dont want to get a whole new vest. Is it possible to spray paint a vest and if so what could i use?

What kind of paint are you using? Spraypaint? Oil paint? Acrylics? Dyes?

I've used spraypaint to turn an ACU backpack OD.

At least get paint that wont come of easy, cause that would just look ugly

the spray painted equipment i've seen tends to wear paint off pretty quick and thus making it look worse than it would have had it not been painted.

Save yourself some time and save and buy the real deal.

Put the digital crap up for sale. Buy OD.

No hassle.


Problem solved.
