Hello Beth, my suggestion would be to scurb the peeling paint & rust with baking soda, a bit of water and a stiff scrub brush. After scrubbing well, rinse and dry, then paint whatever color you want the lanterns to be usng a protective spray paint. Spray in light coats with a few minutes in between or as d directed on the can label.
Scrub off the rust with a stiff brush or a scrubbie and water. Rinse with plain water and dry it off. You can paint it with Krylon or Rustoleum in thin coats. Let dry between each coat, then a clear sealant by either company would protect it.
Use sandpaper to remove the rust, then you can repaint the lanterns.
Rustoleum makes a great rust remover.
Hi Beth: Try making a paste of salt and white vinegar. Put it on the area and let it dry and then brush it off. Do it again if the rust is still there.
Use a wire brush to remove all that is loose then clean with naval jelly.
Ball up a piece of clean foil and rub that over the lantern. I did this on my dad's walker and it made it look like new. Removed the rust and added a nice shine at the same time.
Wire wool it or Sand it off, or use Hamerite Paint strIGHT ON IT!
You could try Brillo or the brass cleaner brasso will. Lean rust off sold on amazon
