Painting Plastic Outdoor Flower Pots

Can I use regular exterior paint to paint my plastic flower pots and planters outside? I tried the spray paint for plastic pots, and it looks disgusting. Not happy at all with it.

I've used regular spray paint and the "stone" paint too with much success! After a couple of years it starts to wear, but grab another can and go again!

Paint them with fingernail polish, even the old stuff. Just smear it around and mix colors. It dries fast and looks awesome!

i used indoor or outdoor acrylic paint to paint my plastic pots. you can get the paint for 75 cents a bottle. then i used a sponge brush or a soft paint brush to put it on and finally i sprayed an outdoor clear sealer on top. which only took 10 minutes to dry. the sealer cost $8 at michaels craft store. so yes you can use just about anything as long as you seal it. i would not use water paints though.
