Plasti Dipping Pleather


Hey bros! In need of some expertise.

Alright, I plan to plasti dip my cape tomorrow when it's finished. It's a textured pleather which is almost charcoal colour, so I figured I'd spray it black.

I tested it on a scrap piece and it works great, BUT it stays sticky and tacky. I don't want the cape to stick to itself so is there anyway I can stop this from happening? Or is it just best I don't plasti it?

I don't have any personal experience with this one, but everything I've read on the boards about using plasti on pleather says one thing...



don't do it.

Re: Plastidiping a pleather cape


Plasti-dip takes several days to fully cure and not be sticky. And on a cape that will always be moving, chances are it's gonna start peeling. I suggest getting latex, spreading your cape open on the floor, and rolling the latex on. Also, you may want to only do the outside of the cape.
Hope that helps!

I plasti'd a pleather cape before and had no problem with it drying. However, I will say this, dont do it. It will peel from the pleather, and you will have a mess.
