    I refinished a brass urn using Rust-Oleum Self Etching Primer spray paint according to directions on the can. Then I refinished with a stone textured spray paint finish. It spent the winter outdoors after several feet of snow fell very early last year and I couldn't get to it to remove it...except for the stone texture requiring a bit of spray touch up I was pleasantly surprised at how well it did. Good luck :)

    Lightly sand to remove any gloss. Wipe off any sanding dust. Use spray paint for metal in several light coats to get the best finish.
