You can clean resin ornaments with a scrub brush and Simple Green or TSP. Painting will be more of a challenge. Typically the resin is colored before the object is molded so the color goes through the entire object. Paint won't stick well to resin so you'll probably need to repaint the objects every few years. Use an oil based spray paint - it will adhere best. Rust o leum is formualated for outdoor use.
