Question Stretchy fabric paint ??

Does anyone know if there's a fabric paint that will work with stretchy fabric such as a zentai suit? Also do they come in a spray? I don't necessarily need it to be safe to go through the wash but that would be cool too if it could..

Thanks!!

Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow is a transparent fabric paint with the consistency of water. It will stretch with spandex and not crack. The fabric will also be able to contract like normal. You need to let it dry fully and then set it with a little heat, but after that it is totally washfast.

You can definitely apply it with an airbrush if you want to spray it on.

Most people agree that stretchy fabrics should be painted in their stretched state. So you can borrow a patient friend, stuff it with cardboard, wear it and get someone else to do the painting, etc. stuffing is most convenient because you can walk away to let it dry.

Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow sounds awesome! But it looks like it comes in normal paint jars, how to I make it into a spray?

As I already said:

If you don't know what an airbrush is, I recommend looking that up, too.
