I don’t think that paining her should be a prob. You might want to make sure that you seal it after you paint it though so you dont have paint chipping onto your cake. You could also glue the figures onto a base as well to prevent this problem. Good luck!

I made my own cake topper. I would recommend painting that one with acrylic paint. Unless you are picking at it, it’s not going to chip off. I bought a wood base from JoAnn Fabrics and painted it with acrylic paint too (it was in the wood craft section) and it worked great!

I would recommend acrylic.  It will dry the fastest, be the cheapest, and stick the best to plastic.  It will still have to potential to flake off, though so I would also reccommend sealing it as someone else mentioned.  I’m not sure what the best thing to seal acrylic is off the top of my head, but i’m guessing the people at a craft store would know.
