Painting on Plastic containers

amart45April 19, 2008

I have been working on a new craft project for my Grandchildren. I am painting on plastic storage containers to be used for my grandkids toys. I am having so much fun downloading the graphics off of the computer and coping them onto the container. I am using DecColor Paint Pens to color the graphics. Has anyone ever done this kind of painting.

I am not sure if they need to be treated with a sealer to protect the paint from coming off.

Would appreciate any help or advise.

Thanks so much, Anne

you could use a spray sealer to help protect since they will be used by children, a few light coats is better then a heavy one, keep your painted part flat when spraying, and till dry, to make sure nothing runs and mess up your project!
do you have any photos to share with us?
