How to Polish Plastic
1. Get the Perfect Polish for Plastic:-
In order to polish any plastic made product, you should first of all reach the polish shop so as to choose the best brand suiting your needs and the best color if you wish to put a new paint over it and then go for polishing. Ask for a sand paper if you wish to clean the plastic and then begin the entire approach.
2. Clean It Off:-
Now before beginning, you should clean off the entire plastic body. Take a sand paper and rub it while removing all sort of paint or any other sticker or anything else stick over it with time. This way the entire plastic body should be made clean in order to go for polishing the plastic body.
3. Restore the Damage first:-
Now after you have cleaned the entire plastic body, there comes a time to heal the damages done to the plastic body with time. If there is any crack or crevices, you can try out healing it either with molten plastic or you may use some quick dry adhesive formula in order to do that.
4. Put on the Enamel:-
After the plastic body dries off and there is no further part left for repairing, you will have to make a coat of enamel over the plastic body and then you should allow the enamel to get dry. The plastic damages that you have healed would also get covered and now there won’t be any crack seen.
5. Let the Base Coat Get Dry:-
If you wish you can choose to make a base coat of paint of desired color now. Simply dip the brush in paint and apply it over the plastic body so as to cover it up with a thick layer of the paint. If you have got powdered version of polish, you can blow it up on the wet paint so as to make it get stick over the layer of paint while it dries.
6. Polish the Way you want it:-
In case you have got the liquid polish, you may choose to make a coat of it with a brush of desired size over the coated part of the plastic body in order to polish it. Now you should let it get dried for some time and when the body gets dried, your plastic body gets polished and that too in a perfect way.
