    I am in the process of creating a kitchen from a bunch of mismatched cabinets and hardware. I brought them all together using similar hues of paint and spraying all of the hardware, brackets etc even plastic outlet covers, with Rust-Oleum Universal Hammered. They have several different metallic colors. Just use tape to cover the frame behind the circles. Use press & seal to cover the circles you don't want painted that particular color, so paint won't peel off when removing it. Good luck hope you love it!

    Krylon spray paint. Mix up the many colors and textures.

    Any spray paint will work easily! Unless you want more colors on it at once?

    I love metal art ... I purchase at yard sales ... especially love Haitian drum art ... I use craft paint for small areas, and spray paint for large areas, then spray all with clear rustoleum...works great, lasts forever, indoors and out. When I want a change, I just do it again!

    Rustoleum 2X spray paint for metal.

  • An easy paint on one with no fumes is the Folklore paints, certain ones in their lineup are for all surfaces.

    Rustoleum is the best for metal. They also have a spray primer. You can add highlights with Rub and Buff which you can get at Michaels or Hobby Lobby

    It will be challenging because I see a lot of small parts and thin metal ribbons. This adds to the complexity of the painting. That's why you should go to experts who have been doing this all their lives and understand how to work with such small parts. If you do not mind, I will advise you decorative metal art screens in Perth because it has been a very positive experience that has yielded excellent results. This service deals with just such problems and has many effective methods for painting and making metal art.
