I would like to know if brass can be painted.

I suppose you could use metal paint - after all, they paint cars, don't they?
Yes, you can paint brass with spray paint. If you have concerns re: the paint not sticking, you can spray it with a primer first, and then add your color.
Yes, I did a light fixture and the brass was pitted and ugly. I aprayed it with and antique brass and I think it looks great!
I painted our brass chandelier. I used an oil based paint that was called "hammered metal." I got it at Lowes.
Is there anyway to paint brass shower door frames, to last permanently?
I don't know about painting it, but if you do, you could put a clear coat on afterwards to protect the paint!
How do I paint a brass type floor lamp?
My husband did this to a couple of lamps some months ago and they look like new. First, sand the brass areas, then spray them with the "sticks to anything" type spray paint.
