Smile wrought iron refinishing

I have some 1950's wrought iron pieces. They have a small amount of surface rust and need to be painted.

How and what do I use to remove the rust?

How and what do I use to paint so it has that same baked enamel look the original has?

Is there some sort of black stain I can use for a touch up?

Rustoleum makes a product that is painted on top of the rust. It looks the same as Hammerite. One does not ordinarily obtain any success staining wrought iron.

Your results will depend upon your skill with a brush and the finish of the product you use. As a general rule, touching up paint looks as if you had.
