Folk art Acrylic

Probably asked before but can't find my list.
1st Question:
What's so special about folk art and Plaid acrylic that justifies £4-£5 a small 2 ounce tube.

2nd Question: What is needed to prepare Plastic flower pots to prevent paint peeling off. Should I sandpaper to scratch surface then Gesso first for good key.or just go for it after roughing surface with the sand paper.
Thanks in advance.

Hails from Canada
Re: Folk art Acrylic

The Folk Art question was asked before. Was it you? I checked at the local Walmart lately, 2 oz bottles of Folk Art paint were $2 something, I think $2.39 or so, Canadian. compared to paying $10 -$20 or more for artist quality paint. It's cheap here, and a common brand.

I would sand and gesso the plastic. Maybe clean with rubbing alcohol before gesso. Plastic isn't the greatest thing to paint on but if it's staying indoors and not being handled much it should last.
C&C always welcome. Michelle

Re: Folk art Acrylic
Thanks LavenderFrost. Age is creeping on and keep list of questions and answers but can't find my book.
I do list this way as its a pain having start computer then search for the list. Books aren't dead yet, and will be a mistake when they are and that info disk doesn't work.
