Have you used plastic paints?

I just made a rain barrel for the front of our home. It is VERY WHITE, and my home is very purple. I'd like to paint a funky design on it, and am looking for paints that successfully paint on plastic outdoors.
I do not want spray paint, but craft paints.
Has anyone tried the Folkart plastic paints? They come in lots of colors.

I have many things painted with the plastic paints.. It goes on easy and in 48hrs, its ready foir the outside.
I buy those resin gazing ball holders that are one color and paint to my hearts desire , I also redo faded resin figurines.

Thank-you. This paint is what I need, then!

Hi GGG and Dolly,
Im very interested in this! Please could you show us your results using this medium! What brand name do you use and where are the paints available?
I have so many resin and plastic outside decorations that need a perk!
