Re-colouring Scalextric Track Borders

5206 Views 15 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  simon_wright91
I've got a mixture of Scalextric Sport track borders - some beige and some black.

I'd like them all black. What's the best way of re-colouring the beige ones? I'm thinking a coat of aerosol plastic primer followed by a few coats of matt black. Is there a better way??
TBH, I'd prefer brush-on to aerosol. Anyone got any suggestions on that front?

With a steady hand and a flat artist's brush, you should be able to paint the red blocks by hand.

Not part of the OP question, but thought I would mention it anyway - on some of my borders, I wanted a textured look, tyre tracks in the mud, rough ground etc. To get the effect, I used acrylic mastic, and worked it with a spatula to the effect I wanted. Then when it was dry (day or so) painted it with normal acrylic paint.
