Although we have not tried to paint Shapway products we did do a test on sample 3D printer items at the Hobby Town show in Omaha last year. We hand painted some Darth Vader helmets with black, red, green and white paint from our automobile line of paints and they adhered very well. The 3D printer people was looking for a paint that would adhere to the plastic they were using (we were 15' from their display table). I don't know if it was anything special about their thin line they were using.
If either of you have any scrap pieces of Shapways products, we have no problem with trying our paint on them - either air brush or paint brush. Send any to us for evaluation.
