Move the object(s) to be painted to a well-ventilated area and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet. Mask off any areas of the object not to be painted. Protect the surrounding area with additional dust sheets or newspaper.
Ensure surfaces to be painted are free from loose paint, rust, wax, oil and grease. Previously painted surfaces should be abraded to provide a key. Unless you are painting with Rust-Oleum Universal spray paint bare wood and metal should be primed with Rust-Oleum Surface Primer and bare plastic should be primed with Rust-Oleum Plastic Primer.
Hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the object(s) and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For best results whilst spraying keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart. For our toy box we used Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch spray paint in French Lilac, Candy Pink and white. Why not buy some interesting wooden shapes or letters to affix to the toy box from your local hobby store? These are inexpensive and can be quickly painted with leftover paint from the main part of the project or Rust-Oleum Craft & Hobby enamel (available in brushing and spray formats).
