Painting Marley - is it possible?
« on: Oct 09, 2018, 03:56 pm »
Hey SMs,

I'm working on a dance show with an incredibly tight budget, but a lot of scenic desires. Does anyone know if it's possible to paint marley flooring to be a different color, while staying safe for dancers?

We have some cheap tan marley, but are looking for it to be grey instead.

Thanks for any tips or advice!

I don't think you could  paint it (if you wanted it to remain flexible enough to roll up). It might be able to take a dye. Perhaps something like this Vinyl dye (sorry it's from an australian site) might work.
