1

Prep furniture and set up spray tent

Prepare bamboo and rattan furniture pieces for painting by cleaning with a degreaser and then wiping clean with a wet cloth. Sand lightly to remove any peeling paint and to rough the surface for painting. Use a tack cloth to remove any dust and debris.

Assemble the Wagner Studio Spray tent.

8

Apply paint

Apply two coats of paint to the bamboo and rattan furnishings, allowing to dry completely between coats. You may find it helpful to turn the furniture upside down to ensure paint coverage on all surfaces and angles.

If you notice any yellowing or bleed-through after the first coat of paint, you may need to seal first with Shellac, then prime and paint as normal.
