painting name on plastic trash bin


I want to paint my name on a plastic trash bin. I thought of printing it in large letters on paper, cutting the letters, gluing the paper to the bin with white glu and after it dries, sand the exposed area slightly and spray paint or use oil paint and brush. Since white glue doesn't stick strongly to plastic, I can remove the paper easily.

Is this a good approach? will the white glue hold the paint from going under the paper?

Any other option that is easy enough?

If your using a stencil why not just use blue painters tape to hold it long enough to spray it?
Going to need a heavy weight paper.
Apply a few thin coats instead of one thick one to reduce runs.
This is made just for plastics.

Welcome to the forums!

How nice do you want it to look? You could just take a brush and latex house paint and letter it that way, other wise masking on stencils and using the fusion spray paint would be the way to go.
