How to Paint Fabulous Floats

Paint on summer with colorful stripes and style. Add designs to lawn chairs, umbrellas, planters, and more...or bring your style to the beach.

DIFFICULTY: Easy

Overview

Make summer memorable in the colors that you love. Paint inner tubes with a marine paint that holds up in sand and salt water. Find inner tubes online or at a local tire store.

1

Tape float

Line the Wagner Paint Sprayer cup with a plastic liner. Equip the detail nozzle. Spray the entire inner tube with white primer.

Tape off stripe patterns on the inner tubes. Think both horizontal and vertical stripes.
