How to paint plastic
In this tutorial Diana will show you how simple, fast and effective it is to paint plastic. Not only does it give you a fresh new colour but also great if the plastic has yellowed from sun damage.
1. Clean the surface to be painted.
Wash the chair with clean water and dry or use a cleaning alcohol (non oil solvent alcohol)
2. Apply the first layer of plastic primer
Once clean and dry apply a thin layer of Pintyplus plastic primer. The aerosol form of this paint makes it much easier to paint irregular plastic shapes such as this chair.
The primer is transparent, so make sure the full surface is covered. It has a drying time of 15 minutes.
3. Choose the paint colour
Although you can use any paint in this step, we recommend using Pintyplus spray paint Evolution. The Plastic primer gives optimum performance when used with the Pintyplus paint range ( Basic, Evolution, Chalk or Aqua) . Have fun with your colour choice.
Thin layers are better. If you do aneven coat, you will not need a second coat. The paint is dry to touch in 15 minutes and in one hour will be completely dry and ready for use.
4. Spray varnish layer
Finally it’s time for the Pintyplus Evolution spray paint varnish layer. This gives your project a bright and durable finish. You can dispense with this step but it does protect your work and gives it a longer lasting finish. You can choose from gloss, satin or matt finish .
