Rebecca Blackburn

If you plan to paint over a plastic material, it's important to choose a suitable type of paint. Fortunately there are many choices on the market today for a variety of materials, including plastic. If the item is a smaller product, the Behr Ultra is an excellent choice. However, you might find it easier to use spray paint if the item you are painting is a larger, more complex item such as furniture.

Behr Ultra Paint
