How can I repair my nutcracker that's missing half a mustache?
Half the mustache fell off my 3’ nutcracker. How can I repair it? Nutcracker is made of some type of fibrous material, not plastic, not wood.
I've used Rustoleum spray paint to rejuvenate some of my planters. First scuff it up to make sure the shine is removed. I've used very fine sand paper or 0000 steel wool. Next clean it well. You want to be sure all of the dirt and sanding grit is completely gone. Then use a spray primer meant for plastic and finally 2-3 THIN coats of spray paint. There are paints now that have primer in them, but I've had more success with 2 separate products. Wishing you the best.
I have used RustOleum for plastic. Clean, scuff with fine steel wool, wipe with denatured alcohol, then spray paint.
Hi Leslie, clean them, lightly sand and spray them
Thanks for all of your help. I crushed all the grass clippings from the pots, lightly sanded, wiped with water, let dry.
