    Cant it be roughed up with some sandpaper?

      I think so it has a couple of rust stains on the arms already.

    Use spray paint made for plastic, but he's right, it will eventually peel.

    Ok even if it does eventually,what it some character. I bought a 4 piece set back in Peachtree City, Georgia back in 2002. It was white. I moved to Richmond, Canada so now time for a beige color. I tired of the white color spray painted with plastic paint. It now is in Washington State and some of the beige has peeled and u can see the white...I love it.

    Funny how this question came up today as I have been pondering over a new color...with a beautiful lakeview, the color of something in the blue family comes to mind.

    For me normally I would be trying to achieve this peeled off paint look......

    Maybe try to prime it first, then use a paint made for sealing rubber like boat paint or an engine/motor paint, spray or brush on. It looks like the furniture won't be in the elements so that should help. Good luck ,hope you find a solution!

    No priming, no sanding, no boat paint or auto paint. Use Krylon fusion spray paint. Bonds to plastic/rubber on a molecular level.

      Sprayed Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch spray paint & primer on my rubber garden clogs, now they’re a sticky mess! Any ideas for me??

    Thank you!!!!!

    Amy Bowles Papineau: Wipe down the clogs with Goo Gone or mineral spirits. Should remove the stickiness. Painter's Touch was the wrong paint to use.

    I use Krylon fusion, a really good product.

    Krylon Fusion spray paint, It doesn't require sanding or priming, protects against rust, and offers a No-Peel Guarantee**.
