Regarding this, what kind of paint do you use on rattan furniture?
Use a good enamel paint suitable for wicker furniture (most paint labels list the surfaces the product is suitable for). Hold the spray can 8" to 10" away from the furniture, and spray back and forth for the most even coverage.
One may also ask, what is the best paint to use on cane furniture? When you paint a cane chair, you want the final coat of primer to completely dry before adding the final coats of paint. Paint on the finish. Use oil-base indoor/outdoor or latex paint on your wicker chair. Oil base paint sticks to cane, lasts a long time, provides good coverage, and flexes with the chair.
Consequently, what is the difference between wicker and rattan furniture?
The defining difference between the two is that rattan is a material whereas wicker is a style of weave. For example, there are many choices of garden furniture that use a wicker rattan weave. That simply means the physical material the furniture is composed of is rattan, and the weave style is wicker.
How do you restore rattan furniture?
To restore dry, cracked, or split rattan, apply boiled linseed oil with a brush. When the furniture won't absorb any more oil, wipe it clean with a soft cloth. Allow it to dry or harden before using the rattan again.
