i would use primer that works for metal things first and then you can probably use any kind of paint.

If you have a Lowes near you they carry this awesome spray paint called Valspar Premium. This stuff sticks to anything! I used it to paint some porcelain pieces and it did the trick.  It comes in all kinds of colors and finishes from flat to gloss. Here is a link. Hope this helps!

if the valspar (really good spray paint) doesn’t work, a primer or (worse) sanding might help. just a light sanding with 200 grit sandpaper would rough up the surface enough to get the paint to stick.
