Hi, my name is Gene Jimenez, and this is what paint to use to paint your plastic floral urns. Have you ever gone to a store and bought these plastic floral urns? They're great but they generally only come in one or two colors and they don't match your decor. I'm going to show you a technique to get this to match your color scheme of your home. This is made out of plastic and acrylic paint doesn't stick to plastic that well. So the first thing you want to do is primer it. We're going to use a spray primer. Make sure your primer also bonds to plastic. Once it's primed and dried, you are ready to paint. Depending on what colors you have available you can do multiple rooms and multiple projects and don't forget the water tray. Now you have a project that matches your color scheme but let's go one step further. I'm going to use a plastic grocery bag and just crunch it up and use it as a texture brush. And somewhere right about there gives you a nice good texture. I'm going to dip it in my silver paint here, getting too much there, so and I'm just going to rotate around my project. Now you have something extra special and it's also the color you want.
