Redecorating an iron 1930s garden table base which has a smidgen of rust bu
t looks like it is not that bothered by it. Will oil based u/c then gloss w
ork or do I need to use rust inhibitor primer first? Have some but would sa
ve time if the paint alone will be enough.
Rust carries on rusting in my experience and cracks the paint more moisture
gets in etc.
However how long do you want it to last, probably outlast most of us even
if it does need the odd clean and touch up. More 'rustic' as they say!
