Painting a plastic garden chest

<< < (2/2)

Oh, you have no idea how much work it is keeping my chest fresh and buffed, Michael.....

Are there any marks showing the type of plastic (recycling marks).

Some plastics - notably polyethylene/polythene - don't take paint at all well.


Thanks for the advice.
After wiping down with white spirit (UK) and then wiping dry I used two aerosols of Valspar green paint which claims that it can be used on plastic and other materials - we will see. There was enough to cover the front and each end but not the back, I think I put it on rather heavily to get the job done in good weather.
I will let you know if it all falls off.
Thanks again.
