Spray Painting Wicker Chairs

Ron Taylor was recently asked about spray painting wicker chairs. Spraying is really the only way to to paint something like this. It is possible with a brush but it would be very time consuming and the finish wouldn’t be consistent.

What are your experiences with wicker and similar intricate pieces?

Sometimes spraying is the only option. I really wouldn’t of liked to have painted these chairs by brush, I certainly wouldn’t of been able to achieve such a great finish and nowhere near as quickly!

Hi Ron, nice little article. I have been trying lots of different paints and techniques with my spray gun also hvlp. I have tried to duck away from sticky paints like bin - how do you keep the gun clean? I am finding water based primers rubbish because they are not sticky enough!
