    Antique look on polypropylene webbing (strap) help!

    I''ve tried dabbing on fabric paint in different patterns without success. I have several colors of brown webbing plus bright white, in both polypropylene and nylon.
    Has anyone had success trying to ''antique'' webbing?
    The only evidence I can find of this is Levy''s Leathers ''Worn Torn'' guitar straps. They use cotton, though.
    My theory: Paint 1 coat let dry, add two splotchy accent colors, let dry, then buff off with a medium wire wheel or ?
    Any thoughts or experiences you''ve had would be much appreciated.
    Thanks!

    i'd recommend trying paints formulated for plastics.
