Refinishing rusty metal furniture

I've some flowers medal vases in the back yard. How do I remove the rust? Will I put something before painting it? What kind of paint do you like or use?

You can use Rustolium Rust Preventer, then paint it.

Remove as much rust as you can and then either use the rust preventer Norm mentioned or an oil base primer, followed by 1-2 coat of oil base paint.

First you need to clean the rusted areas down to bare, shiny metal. Sandpaper or a wire brush can be used and the most difficult will be getting into the nooks and crannies around the welds.

Your post is not clear - what is it you're trying to restore?

Generally vegetable oils are not good for exterior or metal finishes.

The finish has worn away, you need to prep and repaint it.

You already asked that question & had replies. Why did you start a second thread?

I tend to sand to remove paint from metal. Depends on the actual metal but 40 grit paper is not out of the realm of possibility.
