I found out something about ABS plastic last year which the bathroom sinks are made from. Each type of plastic reacts different to paint and what type of paint. This also follows the same thing with gluing plastic.
Last year I was painting the camper frame. Started with oil based Rustoleum Pro rusty metal primer. That oil based paint accidentally brushed onto the white ABS plastic molding around the steps of my camper. I never made it back to trying to get it off and by the time I did, it would not come off short of wire brushing it off. Then I painted the frame with black oil based Rustoleum Pro Enamel. And... some of that ended up on the white trim plastic along with the rusty metal primer color. It looked bad but it for sure was stuck on there.
Then this spring I had a tire blow out and it broke the step trim molding that ended up with carry over paint on it. It was for sure bonded to that trim molding being in the weather and sun for 1.5 years whenever we were out camping. to repair the trim molding I used ABS solvent weld to put the molding back together which was black... This post will show that ABS repair but you can see all the black solvent weld along with the primer and the black paint that ended up on the molding trim. http://www.sunlineclub.com/forums/f7...tml#post143986
I painted that molding with Rustoleum oil based white enamel. Took 2 coats and it has been living now out in the weather all summer due to not being able to put the camper in the barn just yet. That oil based paint is still on as good as the day I put it on.
It went from this
I have used the Rustoleum plastic paint on yellowing trim for the crank up roof vents. That plastic is different I believe then ABS. That plastic paint gave mixed results to almost a disaster. It would curl up. Next time for roof vent trim I will try the Krylon Fusion plastic paint as I know what I won't use.
Point being, for ABS plastic oil based enamel worked in my case which does come in a gloss paint. If you want to try it on a sink, just use a little with an artists brush in a test spot and try it. If it reacts anything like what I had, it should stick well. For sure clean the sink with a cleaner to remove all the soap scum etc. Test what you are using in a small spot as ABS does melt easy with some solvents.
Hope this helps
