Best way to color pads
« on: September 12, 2018, 04:39:28 AM »

Folks,

Need recommendations on best way to paint white pads for T20, specifically navy color. Not really looking at clads option. Also, few friends used paint from hardware store but it sticks and colors the ball, which obviously i want to avoid. What kind of paint is best to use that will make it as close to the colored pads from the brands, is non stick and reasonably lasts... Cheers

JPGavan did some instagram stuff , and may have done a vid or two (maybe just on instagram , maybe also on youtube) on colouring pads with a certain spray paint for pro cricketers. Might be worth trying to search for that .

I experimented with my SD $10 pads few months ago. I painted it green and it came out so bad that I decided to get Clads for my GN legend pads. I think it is the safest way to go.

Vinyl spray paint does a good job as it stretches rather than cracks as regular spray paint does.

I used rust-oleum painters touch spray paint and then rust-oleum crystal clear as a clear coating on the top
