A simple guide to painting drumsticks

First, you will need the paint and a lacquer.
Next, you’ll want to tape the beads and any other part of the stick you do not want painted.
To paint the sticks, I hung them from a hook with twine on my porch. You may have a better method.
I applied 2 coats of paint, then 2 coats of lacquer, allowing each coat to fully dry.
The finished product.
For comparison, the sticks on the left I purchased already painted. The sticks on the right I painted.
I use show sticks with my group. This is after 2 shows. The paint holds up pretty good. Can you tell which sticks belong to my senior?

And that’s it. Pretty simple right? The stick logos were not fully covered by the paint but no one is going to notice that from the stands. Of course, you can always apply additional coats of paint if you like, but I wasn’t trying to spend a lot of money on this. Hope this has helped and good luck!
