Painting PVCs?

I know this is relatively far from arduino topics, but maybe u guys know this:

what type of spraypaint can one use for PVC pipes (I remember from when I worked with RC cars there were different types of spray paint for different materials)… and where can u get this type of paint (specific retailer)?

Thanks :wink:

Did you look at Home Depot, again?

Or ask someone there? I’m pretty sure there is a type of spray paint that says “PLASTIC” on the front.

Krylon Fusion, even though it says you dont need to sand, it helps. Clean up all the parts really well, and use a scotchbrite pad to scuff up the surface lightly

ah! ya i just ran into their site and I realized they have exactly what I need… as for homedepot - its relatively far away from my place, so every trip is one of those “plan before u go, because the next time u go will be in a few weeks” and I completely forgot to get paint when I got pvc there on friday…

So, erm, write down what you want to get when you’re there, and call the store before you go to see if they have what you want in stock?

The people at my store are idiots + I have a list when I go, I just forget to put some things on the list :wink:
