If you were to drip or spatter paint upon your sails there's a very good chance you would not be able to get it out or off. At least so that there wouldn't be a permanent mark. So if one follows that line of thinking perhaps any paint should work. One would think that heavy layers might have a tendency to crack and peel or flake off, but a thin coat should last quite a while.
I think I would start with my absolutely worst condition sail and perhaps make a pattern with several types of paint: oil, acrylic, latex, epoxy, include stains, and see what works best. Hey, why not try some fabric dyes...tie dyed sails.. now there's a thought....
Do report back with your results...with photos :-)
