HOW TO PAINT A RAIN BARREL

1. If you want to use outdoor acrylics to paint your rain barrel you need to prime and top coat your plastic barrel.

2. Clean the exterior surface with a 1:1 mixture of vinegar and water.

3. Use a fine grade sandpaper to “rough up” the surface of the barrel. (This helps the paint adhere to the plastic barrel.)

4. Vacuum the barrel’s surface, then rinse barrel with clean water (static may try to hold the fine dust) and dry with a lint free cloth (or leave it in the sun to bake)

5. Apply at least one coat of outdoor primer. Primer must be allowed to dry per manufacture’s instructions.

6. Paint barrel and allow the paint to dry completely.

7. Apply two coats of polyurethane. Allow the polyurethane to dry between coats.
