Bendsti,

 

Conventional acrylic housepaints and primers will stick to most plastics. The exceptions are polyethlene and poly propalene, which would be unusual  for this use. 

 

I would try a sample atch using Glidden's "Gripper" or zinsser's 1-2-3. both should give you good adhesion to your rain barrel. A quart would be plenty. If the primer seems well adhered after 24 hours, procede with the housepaint of your choice.

 

Hope this has helped.
