Justin asks:
Can you tell me what the best paint marker to use on plastic crafts such as painting a water bottle that won't wash or smudge off?

thank you.

The problem with plastics such as a water bottle is that they are too smooth and there is nothing for the paint to grab onto. Even Sharpie markers wash off after a while. I don’t know of a medium that wouldn’t smudge after a while … sorry! You would have to change the surface of the bottle to make it accept paint. If you are willing to do that here are instructions. Good luck!

Hello, I've painted plastic, before giving a coat of paint. I s sand the plastic and then apply paint, use acrylics in my case, if you want to use the bottle with water can be sealed with any varnish
