I am trying to find paint for plastics. I know Krylon Fusion for plastics is the best but I cant find it. I looked at Walmart and only found White and several types of clear coat. Lowes dosent have any plastics paint and I tryed Home Depot but they dont have any. Maybe I didnt find any because I only asked the people there and they gave me a "WTF" look.

Threads pertaining to only a very small subset of the NIC due to geography or other factors will provide no useful information, and also extract no useful information. Nerfhaven is not your personal search engine.

Well,
I don't know about lowes or walmart, but when I'm in Home Depot, and I ask for something, the people there never know where it is.
I found some here hope this helps.

Next time when your mom takes you to the store go to the spray paint section. Any paint made specifically for plastics will say so right on the label. I know chain hardware stored usually have 2 to 3 different brands.

Walmart is where you will find Krylon Paint. Lowes or Home Depot Have Rust-Oleum Paint, I use the Rust-Oleum Plastic Double Cover Paint a lot. Look for the one that said 'Painter's Touch'. It will also say 'Bonds To Plastic' and 'Double Cover'. Their only paint that is for plastics will have double cover on all of them. Which means LIGHT COATS. DO NOT spray a lot or it will clump up and jam your gun to hell.

We have no idea where you live and what your retail stores look like. Asking us where we can find it won't help you at all. I can find it easily at the B&M home improvement stores around me, where they stock all kinds of spray paint. Everyone has said so far that they find at at HD. But you obviously couldn't.

Maybe spray paint is banned in Allbums, Nowhere?

Asking for automotive spray paint is your best bet. Or look online. (But spray paint has a bunch of shipping regulations).
