Does anyone have any tips as for the following:

What kind of spray paint to use?
How often I should apply the spray paint and how long to let it dry?
Should I take off the original paint job from the stick?
Is their anything I can do to prevent the paint chipping off?

All help appreciated.
- Any spray paint could do the trick

- Spray in light coats, letting it tack up with a couple minutes between coats. Whichever paint you choose ought to tell you to wait 5-10 minutes or whatever between coats. Be sure to beginning spraying off of the stick, then moving the paint stream onto it so you don't get heavy runs.

- Not necessary but it would be a good idea to scuff it up for better adhesion for your new paint

- Add a clear coat which should help with both keeping it from chipping and giving it a slicker feel. For a smoother clear coat, hit it once lightly, sand it down with a high-grit sandpaper, repeat as necessary. Don't sand too hard to get through the clear and into the actual color, though.
