Can you paint gloves?

I got a smoking deal on a pair of TPS summit series gloves but they were the last pair and they were white, has anyone ever painted gloves with a material paint? Also are the summit gloves an R8 special edition?

Heard some bad things about the sweat discoloring material painted gloves. I have also read about people coloring there own gloves and depending on the paint you use it will bleed out of the glove material due to the moisture.

Spray paint ... flat black (well whatever color you want) or something that is not glossy.

I've done it a few times after picking up good gloves cheap because they were either white or all red. You can mask the logos on them before spray painting too so when done it looks like a real unaltered glove.

Be forewarned they may come out a dark gray with the black spray paint because the paint soaks into the fabric and their being white it makes it look gray.

if you are not afraid to experiment go for it.

try some vinyl spray paint, probably find it in a auto parts store. they use it for auto interiors, supposed to work for auto fabric too.

many years ago tried some brush on vinyl paint on some leather gloves with vinyl inserted in areas (in finger/thumb areas) to change one of the colours.

starting wearing off fairly quickly.
