Question how do I paint steel?

I have these homemade steel piggy banks. I know I need to prepare the steel by rubbing it with fine steel wool, and I need to wash it with soap & water, but I don't know what kind of primer or paint to use. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

eeyore, A couple of ways....Spray primer and paint like Rustoleum would be good. A brush primer for metal followed by any good paint. Since rust probably won't be a problem Sherwin-Willaims has DTM(direct to metal) paints. A light sanding between coats with 320 grit sandpaper would be good....Mike
