Outdoor acrylic paint in a spray can
1. Lay the drop cloth down in the area where you're going to work. Be sure you are far away from anything you dont want spray paint on. It will carry in the air even on the calmest of days so take precautions.
2. Clean the wicker furniture with a sponge and soapy water, I like to use dish detergent since it is mild. Then use the deglosser, following the manufacturer's instructions, this is especially important if you are doing new wicker the paint will not adhere well to a shiny surface. Allow the furniture to dry completely, usually overnight is best.
3. Spray all the surfaces with the paint. Use gentle sweeping motions to get good coverage without causing drips. And be sure to spray from different angles to ensure all exposed surfaces of the wicker are painted. Take your time and do not put the paint on heavy.
4. Allow to dry at least one hour. If the color is uneven or just not bright enough, apply a second coat of paint.
