[Namron] Needing advice on what Paint to use for outdoor banner....

Here is a link to an article on painting tents:
Basically, what he recommends is using exterior latex house paint,
thinned with water so it will penetrate the fibers.  Use more than 1
coat if necessary.  This has been discussed on a period encampments list
on Yahoo several times, and as I recall this is the general consensus as
to the best method.  Fabric paint is available at craft stores, but if
you need a lot of it it gets expensive and some types recommend
heat-setting (ironing or dryer) to fully cure and bond.
There are several people in Namron who have made excellent painted
banners, Mistress Alix and Mistress Stacia among them.  I'm sure they
would be happy to give you advice if you wish.

Subject: [Namron] Needing advice on what Paint to use for outdoor

Greetings all!

I am truly in need of any advice or suggestions you all can give me...
I am making an "outdoor banner" of sorts.  It is something that will be
used in all sorts of weather that we run into in the upper portion of
Ansteorra, AKA, anything is possible!  

I am painting it on Trigger fabric, and need to make sure 1) it will
stay on and won't flake an incredible amount, and 2) that it will not
peal off on other parts of the trigger fabric or other parts of that are
already painted on the banner.

I'm not exactly on a budget, but will need a lot of paint to finish this
job.  Is there some kind of craft paint that will fit my needs?  Or is
there something I can pick up at a craft store to add to the paint?
Again...I'm in desperate need of all of your experienced voices!

Thanks so much, 
Aelesia Of Warwick
