What kind of paint should I use on my brass lamps?

I like their candlestick shape but I'm mortally tired of the brass! Could I make them look like mercury glass?  Thanks!

    You can use chalk paint on anything. I'm not sure about the mercury glass.

      Thanks. I've been hearing a lot about chalk paint lately. But I haven't tried it yet. I'll look on Pinterest too.

    I have updated all the old brass in my home. There is a wide selection of various types of spray paint at home depot or Lowe's. Browse their selection and see if there is anything that might catch your eye. Good luck!

    Yes! Pick a spray paint color or texture that you like and spray away! Be sure to tape off areas of the lamp that you do not want painted.

    Great! Spray carefully and do several light coats for even coverage that doesn't drip. Many people try to spray one time and end up with an uneven coat or drips. Be patient!
