I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but ... I would like some information please. What paints are useable with the flexible plastic the Star Wars figs are made of? I am trying to customize one but the paints I have(The pla enamels used for plastic models) either flake off or remain sticky. I would greatly appreciate any advice here.

The Tamiya paints might do the trick, I've had pretty good luck with the enamels sticking to just about everything but the joint plastics.

You need to use Acrylic paints not enamels. Acrylics are based on water. You cn choose from few brands ad find out which one are work the best for you.
Here is a few leading brands:
-Testors model masters
-Citadels from Games Workshop
Also afther you finish painting it will be good if you seal all parts using varnish matting spray to prevent rubbing off paint.
