Bendy paint...

Guys,

Do you know of a paint that would be suitable for spraying cables? I need something extremly bendy that will not crack

An enamel based paint for sure! Enamel forms a membrane, that if of a reasonable quality and given a good undercoat, will remain pliable and resist cracking.

How long is this cable?

To get a decent finished you'd prob need to plastic wrap it somehow. Heatshrink or some kind of braiding?

Around 40cm long and braiding/heatshrink are out of the question as the plugs on the cable are moulded on
