Is there any way I could paint a my plastic yoyo?

I think my plastic yoyo looks so dull without color, It’s just white and I want a different color. Does any one know how to paint a plastic yoyo?

Depends what kind of plastic. What yoyo is it?

It is the Yomega ooch (not smooth move)

Now, I’m no paint expert, but I do not believe there is a way to “paint” that injection molded plastic without it being really rough. I’ve tried on a friend’s ONE and the paint just comes off. It didn’t even dry. If you had Delrin though…

if it has a smooth surface, you can use some duplicolor adhesion promoter as a primer, then use either krylon fusion or rustoleum paint for plastic as the color, then after the paint cures, finish off with a few coats of either krylon clear coat or duplicolor acrylic lacquer. that works for regular plastic.

hope this helps!

In addition to the duplicolor adhesion promoter, you might also want to give the surface a light sanding with 200 or 300 grit sandpaper. that will give the paint something to hang on to as well.
