Some questions about rubber Answered

I was wondering what kinds of paints work the best on rubber. I'm talking about heavy-duty, solid rubber. I'd like to age an object made of this without hurting it and I was just curious as to the best way to go about doing it.
Also, what type of glue would work best with it.

Thanks -- by aging it, I mean to make it look old, worn.
Thanks again!

We are, I assume, talking synthetic rubber, which would be less porous then natural, but still porous.
If it flexes at all, you need a flexible paint to cover it.
I am not sure I know what you mean about "aging it"; however.  But there are products in the craft stores that "crackle" paints and vanishes; if that it the effect you are after.

Here is one example at this link.
