So, you’ve got a random plastic thingie that’s ugly?

Hit it with some Rustoleum.

Just so you know, there’s other paints that work, I just happen to work at a place where I can get Rustoleum cheap and I’ve used it on every kind of surface in every kind of weather and it’s held up…

I did this on a van once:

Basically…

  • sand lightly,
  • hose
  • paint with primer/paint in one
  • do layers, using a branch, in various colors
  • paint farther with acrylics if needed
  • top with sealer (Rustoleum makes many)

 

You can make sea horses…
