What paints to use on brass



(-----) 2006

I have removed from our cemetery posts, one each, that were badly weather worn and hardly legible. After have them sand blasted.(that came out beautiful.)They are solid brass! With a textured background with polished raised letters. The trim around the whole plaque is also polished.

My question is,what paint can I use for the background? Does it require an undercoat? I am very serious about this and appreciate any advise you can give me.Thank you for anticipated reply.

Sincerely,

To paint brass you should prime with an oil-based primer or a latex primer for rusty metal. a oil-based primer like Kilz [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] would be your cheapest way. If you do not prime, a green color will come through the top coat. Any exterior grade latex or oil paint could be used for top coat.
