I'm assuming you're striping on leather. One Shot lettering paint will work fine.
If you're working on synthetics, I can't help you much.

Thanks for that I did want to know about pinstriping on synthetics too, I bought a handbag at Paso this year and the pinstripe design has all cracked and half of its come off already, my friend had someone pinstripe her converse sneakers on the rubber toe bit and it is still on there 4 years later.

Yeah, I can understand about the synthetics. Paint won't stick well at all. You might contact House of Color. They have a line of striping urethanes that may work. Just ask. Also google Kustom Shop and search for EZ Flow paints. I believe they are relatively new, but made for striping, but don't know much about them.

Years ago, I pinstriped a bunch of 50/50 T-Shirts with acrylic craft paint, right out of the bottle. They have the tiny nozzle that squirts out a fine stream of paint. It was pretty tedious work, and easy to mess up, but the ones that turned out looked pretty cool. They held up for a year or two before the paint started to crack. I'm not sure that stuff's the best of quality, but at times, my motto has been, " I'll stripe anything that'll hold still long enough."

Good luck.

Thanks heaps for that, there are a few of us here at Petrolhead mag that have got the bug and in the early stages of learning to stripe, we'll have a play around and let you all know if we find a good paint to use.

I really appreciate all the advice. Cheers

Looks Good, I have been pinstriping since I was in high-school,
on a non-professional so to speak basis, The secret is all in the
brush, and loading the brush. I did all my pinstriping and graphics
on my T, all by brush (no airbrush)

that youtube video was terrific, and had links to a lot of other great clips, too. Very helpful.

A freind suggested I start working on getting some of my cartoons painted on my harley tanks. "you're an artist," he sez, "you'll figure it out."

What I've figured out is that I need to mask and airbrush the main areas, then use a striping brush to to the outlines. I've got a borrowed siphon feed airbrush, which I'd like to replace with a gravity feed one, and a squirrel hair striping brush I got at my local paint store.

My first attempt, the striping came out pretty bad, and I had a hard time getting the lines thin and consistent. I think I need to work on getting the brush loaded properly, and also practice like crazy as I can. I figure it'll take me a few years to get comfortable with it.

re: Pinstriping

I ran across this thread looking for something else and I got to thinking about when I use to pinstripe. I went and dug tru the stuff in my shop's attic . I remembered I had recovered some stuff I had striped in the late 70's. I had striped motorcycles, cars,trucks, trailers, two fire trucks, bicycles and skate boards.
The panel in the pictures was what I used to load and test the width and point of the brushes I used, I usually wiped it clean after I finished but I guess I didn't the last time I used it.
The picture of the lower right corner with the dime was painted with a brush I made from a large kitchen match with and hair I cut from a large paint brush.I use to sign my work with this but I would paint it on top of one of the first stripe's I layed down . The color would be tinted to a slightly lighter shade than the stripe. You really had to look to find it, I did this on most every thing I did.
The helmet in the pic's is the very first helmet I bought. I was in the Navy and to ride a motorcycle on base you had to wear one.
These two items spent about 22 years in the trunk of a junk car. I thought everything was gone, had a fire in shop, building was totaled, tools, supplies, paints, brushes, airbrushes----everything.
When the cars were pulled out of the woods so they could be scrapped, one of the guy's pryed open the trunk of the only car that still had one and dug tru the stuff that was in there, he found these two items and recognized the creature on the front of the helmet. He brought them to me and told me he remembered seeing the creature on one of the bikes tanks that I had striped. I told him that he must have a very good memory as that bike was the only one that I put that on and that bike only had its paint and stripe's one day as it's owner t-boned a car that ran a red light throwing him over the car and totaling the bike.
I haven't stripped in many many years, hands won't let me . Every time I see a car or bike with stripping and it's the right age I look at it real close , who knows I might run across something I did.

Kenny,
That story is so damn cool to read! As I am a fan of old school pinstriping.
I just dont know if they all realize how cool it is. With the modern age of
vinyl cutters, airbrushing of everything in sight,,,,,,the good old hand lettering
and pinstriping. My hats off to ya!!!
