I want to paint small plastic recycled bottles to use as salt and pepper shakers. Should I use oil paint or acrylic? Does it need a glaze? Can they be washed with no damage to the paint?
Why not just cover them with polymer clay? I have covered and baked a large variety of plastic containers with good results. Since the temperature for baking is only 250 degrees there hasn't been a problem with melting bottles yet! I use Sculpey, but other brands like Femo will work just as well. You can get it at Michaels Craft Stores or order on line. Check the library for books about it. Here's a photo of a small bottle and a baby dragon I made.
