by Mopar11 Works very well...always had great results!
I've been using Krylon Fusion now for a couple of years now and I mostly use it to paint automotive engine covers and smaller plastic underhood plastic pieces. Part prep is very simple, just wash with soap and water to remove most of the dirt, then spray with a static repellant like Static Guard, then a good wipe down with paint thinner. As soon as the paint thinner dries, I paint the parts. If the parts are small enough, I throw them in my dedicated paint drying oven at 175F for 4 hours (when the 4 hours is up, I turn the oven off and let the parts and the oven cool off). This greatly accelerates the full cure time and the parts can go right into service! Sticks extremely well to difficult to work with plastics like polypropylene and polycarbonate, particularly after using the heat cure. Larger pieces that can't be baked are left in the sun for a few hours but are left to sit for 7 days before going into service. Another current project I am using them on is the restoration of some fibreglass Herman Miller Eames chairs. After sitting outside 20 years, a new finish is going to breath new life into these classic works of art!
I've had some of the typical "issues" that people report like the "dusting", which for any paint that isn't applied in a spray booth, to be a normal occurrence. Also, I occasionally have issues with the rough finishes but I attribute that to poor paint environment, like the temperature/humidity being too high, or painting in direct sunlight. For the Herman Miller chairs, I fully expected to do a final wet sanding after I was done especially after painting the insides of the chairs which proved to be more difficult than I thought. Also, the coverage may not be exactly what the can says, coverage amount on the can is like a speed limit, it's a suggestion under ideal conditions!
I'd suggest using a clip on spray handle and if possible always keep the can and the piece you are working with vertical. You can paint items horizontally (flat) but this is more difficult and your results may vary...and you will use way more paint spraying horizontally.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marvel powdery residue ??
Today, I bought 2 cans of fusion to paint a 48" round, med green, older, resin top dining table used on my covered deck. chose the colors black and brown to obtain a softer, black /bronze finish. Prepped the table top per the directions on the can, then used sweeping motions, alternating with both colors. After about 30-45 min., I lightly ran my hand over the table top and found a substantial black powdery residue....Is this normal ??
Lightly went over the top with paper towels and "think" the residue was removed...but will it come back?
Also finish was mottled and coverage was less than ideal. Used an entire can of black and about 25% of the brown.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Theresa This is the worst paint ever
I bought the white glossy paint to paint a normal picnic basket white. I was so happy when I found this product. No primer necessary, made for wood and wicker. Awesome! Too bad it's terrible. I used an entire can and you can still see the brown underneath. It looks horrible! This was supposed to be used at my sister bridal shower. Now I'd be embarrassed for people to even see it in my trash. I've never seen a spray paint perform so poorly except for the one time I bought one of those cans they sell at Walmart for like $.50. This had about the same results, actually maybe worse. Awful product. I would not suggest using it on wood or wicker so maybe you should take that off the can.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Emily Horrible!!!!
This is the worst spray paint I have EVER used. I am using it to spray paint a laminate counter top and it's horrible! It has dripped and run all over the place! I have already done one counter top in another bathroom in a different brand and it looked GORGEOUS! I used your brand due to a specific color and I'm having regrets! It is spotty, runny, and messy! It sprays and drips all over the place!!!! I am highly dissatisfied!!! I will NEVER buy your products again!

by jpdraven Prep plastics correctly and it works awesome
Painting plastics is all in the prep work. If you prep your plastics right this paint is very durable. If you don;t prep right then it's not nearly as durable.
A light sanding, and by light I mean just roughing the surface MINORLY with an extremely fine sandpaper light 2500 and then a quick 3500 grit is all you need.
The sanding scuffs the painting surface just enough to allow the paint to have grooves, valleys, and pits, to lock on to. THAT'S THE KEY. Wash surfaces with soap and water. Dry thoroughly. Paint! DONE.
Do that, use this paint and you'll love it.
Look at the pics of the GI-JOE toy style Transformers Jets I made using Krylon Fusion Paints. Speaks for itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scotty Fusion is the BEST!
I've used FUSION paint since it came out and must admit, on plastics....nothing is finer. One simple question...WHY is KMART and Wal-mart pulling off it it off their shelves???? I can't find it anywhere now and can find nothing else as good as Fusion!

by jjdame Chips off after only a couple of weeks
I recently purchased about 7 cans of this paint to spray paint a plastic step-2 house that I picked up at a garage sale. I followed the directions exactly and the paint covered the house nicely. Within 3 weeks though, the paint is chipping off immensely. My fun, easy project has turned into a disaster!! Nice concept, too bad it doesn't work. My inexpensive house, after 7 cans of paint, became a $100 waste of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NCHandywoman Krylon Fusion for Plastic House Shutters
It's been a year and a half since I used Krylon Fusion in Satin Burgundy for my house shutters. Originally they were Hunter Green and were very faded since they face the sun continuously. I followed the directions and I could not believe the transformation of my house! I got lots of positive responses, but some people wondered if the spray paint would hold up. I have nothing but praise for this product. There isn't any chipping, flaking or fading. I am so happy with the results and would recommend it to everyone!
