Whether you need to paint plastic furniture, doors, toys, PVC or any other item, there are many types of paint for plastic surfaces at your disposal. As you can see in the image above, we were creative with the choice of paint that we used on plastic garden furniture and this is because there is a wide range of colours and finishes to choose from.
Although most paints that can be used on plastic are classed as “universal” paints, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing because they can be used to paint a range of other surfaces too.
To assist you in selecting the right plastic paint, our handpicked selection showcases top-performing brush and spray paints, chosen based on our first-hand experience using them to paint a variety of plastic surfaces. Our rigorous testing and up-to-date research further ensure the quality of our recommendations.

How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates The Plastic Paints
Compared to other DIY tasks, painting plastic is very rewarding and over the years, we’ve painted a range of plastic surfaces such as garden furniture, car parts, gutters, facias and soffits, sheds and so much more.
As you can see in the image, my partner wanted a standout plant pot that was completely unique. Therefore, instead of hours searching the internet, we simply found a suitable plastic plant pot to paint. In terms of the paint we used, Rust Oleum (our best-rated paint for plastic) certainly ticked all the boxes and it was very easy to apply.
As well as our testing and experience, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and a number of factors. Some of the factors that we took into consideration included the colour selection, ease of application, compatibility (interior or exterior use), finish, durability, coverage and value for money.
