I’ve never done anything with those frames in particular, but from spraypainting plastic in the past, you will probably need to sand and/or prime these. Didyou buy a spray-paint specifically made for painting plastics?

I’d assume they are plastic like the regular picture frames I used from the dollar store. If so you’ll either need a spray paint specifically for plastic or use a primer first.

I spray painted those frames for our wedding. I didn’t prime, and I didn’t have problems with bubbling. I used the Krylon spray paint that said it was suitable for plastic. I would recommend spraying thing layers to avoid dripping drops.

I have used them without a primer with no problems. I suggest you also remember to use very thin coats when spray painting anything.

Make sure you aren’t spraying too close to the frame. Stay back about 12 inches and do long sweeping motions and several thin coats instead of one or two thick ones. That should help.

@GFerg:  I second this. If not, you will end up with rage face in the backyard wondering how to get rid of all the drips.
