painting ABS parts with acrylic paint

Postby marmil » 2012-Jan-Wed-18-Jan

I'd like to try painting ABS parts with acrylic paint so started looking up what's the best way to do this. A few useful links I ran across:

http://www.ehow.com/how_4925502_paint-abs-plastic.html -- good basic info
https://groups.google.com/group/makerbot/browse_thread/thread/81b93a704878858a?pli=1 -- google groups MakerBot post
http://www.ehow.com/how_4925502_paint-abs-plastic.html -- a few good tips, but some stuff here maybe less relavent to our 3D printed parts.
http://edutechwiki.unige.ch/en/Post_processing_of_3D_polymer_prints#Painting -- some general cleanup tips
http://pp3dp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=97 -- not so much about acrylic, but some info about color dying parts.

If anyone runs across a good related link, or has acrylic painting suggestions for ABS please share.

I know this is not acrylic paint, but marcus sure does have a good color choice. It is here on our forum.

No clue what this has to do with the topic, printrbots, or 3d printing - but it links to a very interesting site about Andalusian art.

Probably Google link spam, but perhaps the poster will elaborate. Maybe he could post some geometric stl files we could print and then paint.
