Toy Vehicles from Plastic Bottles

    Does anybody have recommendations based on experience for paint that is durable on common container plastic LDPE and/or HDPE? After following the link, I suspect these “toys” were more props than anything else. Especially given they are shown in the photography section of the artists work. Beautiful art work but I think my 18 month old would make short work of removing the paint and deconstructing these objects.
