Painting over exposed Drywall Metal


Need to paint a wall that has the some of the metal joint of the drywall exposed and is showing some rust. How do I cover the metal and prepare the wall for painting?

By metal you probably mean corner bead? Lightly sand the rust off, and spot prime with rust inhibitive primer. Patch any necessary area ( low spots etc. ) prime with acrylic/latex, and paint.
