Painting pots, containers?
I have an assortment of plastic pots, window boxes, etc. and loved the pictures of the bright red painted pots in another thread. I'm thinking I could spend the time between now and when it's actually safe to fill my containers with plants with that as well as my trellis project.
What kinds of paints will work well on the plastic, without costing a fortune? What kind of pre-cleaning and/or pretreatment will they require?
I'm assuming you don't paint the inside, so how do you paint the rim and prevent chipping?
What brushes or other application tools have you had the best luck with?
Do you need to paint in a shady area? The easiest place to work for me would be the back patio, but it is in full sun all afternoon & into the evening. Does the painting and drying need to be done out of direct sunlight?
Any other tips? or suggestions you can offer would be appreciated!
