I was in the hardware store today and saw this paint (in my store, called "krylon" ) that is spray paint that says it is especially made to be used to paint on plastic surfaces.  

Has anyone ever used this?  I thought it would be good for painting big plastic tubs, as well as some of my ugly fake wood furniture pieces that regular paint does not stick to, but I am wondering if it actually works.

I'm curious about this too. I have a TV that is just screaming to be painted hot pink...

I heard about it on Tech TV, for painting computer cases, etc. Is it called Fusion? That's what this stuff is called, and it's supposed to work good, according to them. If it works on a computer case, it should work on a TV!

Here's the bit from TTV -

Question No. 6: Painted CD-ROM tray
Heather from Ferndale, Michigan, wants to know about painting the tray inside her CD-ROM drive. Specifically, is that a bad idea? Patrick and Leo believe it can be done, but it must be done very carefully. .....

....blah blah blah ...

For the actual painting, she needs to be careful about the kind of paint she uses. Many paints will melt the plastic or create a permanent sticky mess. Fortunately, Krylon makes a paint called Fusion that's made specifically for painting on plastic. If she uses Fusion and properly primes the plastic, her tray painting dreams can be realized.

When I thought my love for Tech TV could not grow anymore, I come to see that they have even given out crafty tips....  Shocked

Yay for Tech TV!  Grin

Who says crafts and computers don't mix Huh  Grin

It was from one of Yoshi's mod shows - I just remembered about the paint thing from there!
