Painting a new outdoor light fixture


For my new house we found a style of outdoor fixture that we really like, problem is it only comes in black and we want brown/bronze.

I would like to paint these fixtures, but to get a lasting durable finish capable of withstanding Wisconsin winters, I'm thinking it's more than just grabbing a can of Rust Oleum and spraying.

There is probably going to be only a 60W incandescent bulb in each one so I'm thinking I wouldn't need a high temperature paint.

Any suggestions for getting the best results possible? I am hoping to not have to take these down every couple years and recoat them.

Painting a new outdoor light fixture

Would powder coating be appropriate? I have thought of having that to a couple of antique fixtures that I have, but haven't checked the cost.
