This is kinda off topic but, when I use to be a brownie troop leader, we never could afford the paints for plastic, but we found out if we mixed white school glue with acrylic paint it made it stick the plastic and gave it a shiny durable kind of finish. The trick is you have to slightly dilute the glue with water before you mix it...and don't use your quality brushes with it unless you clean them very well and leave them sitting in water while your painting so they dont harden on you. If they do you can cover them with dishsoap over nite and it usually comes out...btw make sure its the washable white glue not the tacky glue. Cool

It's been said, but I love the irony of the Virgin Mary on a re-"vamped" b/c pill pack! I've seen the paints for plastic, but they're pretty expensive up here (Canada), so haven't tried them yet. If this has been covered on another thread, please let me know, but I would really, really love a product review of the paints for plastic. Just had a thought. (And it's so early in the day!) What do people think of an area where Craftsters submit their "product reviews" when companies put out new stuff? Or of existing products, for that matter. Real feedback from people who actually use the stuff under "real" conditions...(geez, that sounded like an advert. sigh).  Maybe the companies would even start sending us free "samples" to test  Wink...mmm

I think it must depend on the kind of plastic you use. I bought paint for plastic to use on my ugly clear plastic dresser, and it worked terribly. I can't imagine it works that badly on all plastic, or else you'd think it wouldn't sell...

craftypixie - can you post a picture of the pill pack? or a link to a picture of it? i don't recognize the name, so i can't visualize it.

psuedola - was it a clear plastic dresser? i do seem to remember having better results on opaque plastic.

thank you!
i am planning to sell them in the OOAK section of my site. i still have to do them though. i just ordered some more PforP last night. i cheaped out on the shipping, so it'll be here in about 10 days or so.
was there a specific theme or design you were interested in? since i haven't done them yet i'm more than happy to customize Smiley

LOVE this idea.

I use the Patch, and I've been given like 20 square containters to hold the unused patches in and I was getting annoyed with them because I didn't know what to do with them

I hope I didn't toss all of them out. I can't remember *runs to her room*


and thanks dyabolica  for the glue/acrylic idea. I don't have money to spend on new paints.

 *Ms. Paige*
Where did you get square containers for your patches?? I'm on the patch as well. Have been for about a year now, And all i get is a crappy cardboard box, Which always gets smashed and about gives me a heart attack thinking one of the patches got bent.. Thanks! I'd love to get some
