How To Painted A Plastic Horse Statue Like New?

Paint a  plastic horse statue is like painting a plastic picture – unless the plastic is prepared and primed in advance, the paint may peel off in a short time or may not be compliant. If you’re repainting a horse statue that has spent time outdoors, first clean it, otherwise you can paint over dirt. Cleaning plastic pieces, new or old, provides the opportunity to find small pieces of cloth or seams that need sanding before painting.

Step 1

Wipe down the plastic pad with some powdered cleanser or mild dish soap on damp sponge. Detergent is best for a piece of unpainted plastic, or something very dirty and it will be repainted completely. The snack soap is for plastic that has been painted and just touched; The soap is gentle enough to not harm existing paint. Use a toothbrush to remove debris, for example, for an outdoor plastic figure. Rinse plastic objects with tap water.

Step 2

Check the cleaned plastic statue, look for seams or leftover plastic that needs to be cut before painting. Cut the asphalt with a manual knife, sliding the knife out of your body, instead of towards you, to ensure safety. Use sandpaper to smooth out rough lines instead of or in addition to cutting spare materials with a knife. Wipe off dust with a damp sponge.

Step 3

Cover a work area in a well-ventilated place, such as outdoors, with the newspaper. If the plastic item is small enough to be placed inside a cardboard box, use a large cardboard box as a spray chamber, instead, place the box on the side and place the project piece inside the box, upright.

Step 4

Shake cans primer for a minute or so. Spray the statue by stroking evenly, stroking evenly, keeping the primer 12 to 18 inches away from the object. Start each stroke a bit before the statue begins, ending beyond the end of the statue. This keeps the finish consistent, without breaking the primer on one area. Allow the primer to dry, then rotate the image to paint the other side. Allow the primer to dry completely.

Step 5

Paint the horse statues with acrylic craft paint or paint designed for plastic models with an artist’s brush. Work with one color at a time, allowing all paints to dry before painting nearby areas. If the entire statue is mostly one color, such as a ladybug, you can choose to cover the whole layer with one color, then add a secondary color over the dry base coat.

Step 6

Continue painting the desired colors on the statue, painting large areas first, adding final beautiful details, after painting under the dry details. For example, if the statue has large eyes, fill in the eyes, then add pupils and details after the main eye color has dried up.

Tips to painted a plastic horse statue

To touch a previously painted plastic statue, clean the horse statue thoroughly, then paint acrylic or model the desired color on the area to be touched. For best results, repaint all areas that match the touch paint color, otherwise the new paint may not match the previous one exactly, resulting in a matte finish.

An optional clear polyurethane spray sealant protects the paint, if you are concerned that the paint may be chipped.
