  1. prep — clean your light fixtures to remove all dust and grime, tape off around the fixture on the ceiling and put down drop cloths or plastic sheeting to protect the area from overspray
  2. prime — don't skip this step! prime the light fixture with a clean metal primer, applying in an even coat and let dry
  3. paint — apply 2 coats of gold metallic paint. Work in thin even coats and let dry between
  4. sealing (optional) — if you choose to seal your light fixtures, be sure to use a clear satin enamel paint so you get a metal-like finish with a sheen that looks real
