Just go back to Casto and look a for paint for metal (fer ou acier, noir, mat), and then get busy!

I defitely wouldn't use an aerosol, it will take ages and cost a fortune. Also, with large surfaces, it's really messy as the tiny particles go everywhere including into your skin. I once sprayed a table and learned my lesson!

A lot of these people who fit gates and railings suggest letting them get rusty - gives them that 'old' look. I prefer to paint them with Hammerite black paint which you can paint direct onto rust. It's expensive but lasts. Using an aerosol can would be incredibly expensive (depending on the size of gates) but would be easier I guess. Good luck.
