Painting plastic


Postby DerekB » Sat Mar 28, 2009 3:30 pm

I am trying to disguise 2 garden features:

1. This is a bright green plastic water butt (Which I inherited)

2. A small pvc plastic garden locker which is white with dk green sides.

Both of these are situated alongside a wooden fence and shed which is painted in traditional med/dk brown.So the above objects stand out like a sore thumb and I was hoping that a good qual Cuprinol fence paint would do the job to help these blend in.However on a trial this doesn't seem to work.Ideally a brown matt paint would suit,obviously fairly waterproof as well.
Any suggestions please?

Use an acrylic, microporous paint. Key the surface well first though.
