Repainting a Metal Bird Feeder

I have a birdfeeder that is made of metal, and rusted in one spot. I would like to paint it. I have sanded that spot and all around it. Could you please tell me if Rustoleum would be the correct paint to use.

That is fine, yes. You might want to use a paint primer first.

Yes, that would be the correct paint to use.

It is also recommended to use a prime coat to do the job properly.

Yes, it is-the rustoleum for metal.

Rustoleum makes an orange colored primer. Paint the color of your choice over that. Rustoleum makes both flat and shiny finishes.

Just be sure the paint you use is lead-free and non-toxic as it is possible the birds may peck some of this when getting food.

Most bird information sites state that paint will last longer if it is brushed on instead of spraying on. It is recommended to use a primer but also a final coat of polyurethane, clear top coat.
