How do you paint plastic and Altoid tins and have it stick?
GrandmasHouseDIY on Nov 06, 2017Hi Susan my first thought was to suggest rustoleum which is the toughest oil based paint I've found. I know I've seen people use a little dye coloring in mod podge and then painting it on, I'm thinking using a glue like that would probably do better then any kind of paint.Helpful Reply

Rebecca Hare Lehman on Nov 06, 2017I use super fine sandpaper on tins I plan on painting. I let each coat dry for 8 hours before moving on to the next. A friend of mine bakes them for a couple of hours on 175. Used spray adhesive as primer on one of those huge popcorn tins a while back. Covered the rim and inside lid to keep them free of adhesive. Let dry overnight. Weather was very warm- 80s or so and 0% humidity so did all outside. Would never have tried it but was broke and desperate. Had to have a gift in two days, planned everything and the only paint I had was interior latex. I sanded between coats 1 and 2 of paint. Did 4 coats and then spray varnish. Paint stuck and is still on the tin. It's being used for puppy treats and doesn't get much use. If it had been lumpy and yucky was going to cover the whole thing in lace. Modeling paints and fingernail polish also work really well.Helpful Reply
