    Cheapest spray you can find.

    Paint job quality is predominantly determined by the prep work, not the brand.

    Yeah you used hot water and soap to clean up after sanding.

    @Acerised

    Hoping you'll see this, you linked to SupaCheap vinyl paints and said you love using them. I hope you don't mind me picking your brain for a moment, what brand? I bought different vinyl paint brands from SupaCheap and another car store, tested them all and had zero luck with any of them.

    TIA

    Hi Acerised,
    thanks for taking the time, really appreciate it as this has been an ongoing battle for me. Okay, that is not one of the brands I bought, so I might have to give that a go. The ones I bought I tested on a couple of different plastic types, did all the usual prep, long drying times between coats etc, everything by the book. Expected to see a semi scratch-resistant base coat (since it was alluded to that vinyl paints actually adhere to the surface, but also soak in to a degree), what I got on the non Nerf blaster was literal flaking off as soon as I took a fingernail to it. On the Nerf I just got a basic black coat, not as good as regular rattles that was only as scratch resistant as those also.

    I'll try and grab dupli-color this weekend and give it a try

    That's weird. This can i got dried very fast between coasts, under 15 mins. I did the normal prep work; sand, wash.. etc. I waited 24 hours after the last final coat to ensure the paint was dry and so scratch resistant. I also added two small light clear coats to avoid scuff marks on the white. I used vinyl paint as the pump action would not scrap the paint off and so it doesn't, i also added a little bit of lube aswell. I hope this helps.

    Ang,

    I've had exactly the same results with vinyl dye - very hit 'n miss with different brands. I've given up on them as a reliable alternative to normal enamel:

    *Only acrylic paint seems to bond to the dye properly - enamel just never seems to cure..

    *You still have to do the same prep work as using enamel or acrylic paints.

    *Out here, I can buy 6 to 8 cans of enamel for the same price as one big can of dye.

    Cheers,

    Hey Clunk

    Yeah sounds like we both had the same experience and paying $20 for one can, compared to the usual $4 or so isn't great. I'll try and grab the dupli-color this weekend and let you know how that one goes.
