Antique Enamel Basin

A customer had brought this old enamel basin that was full of rust to be painted.I had no choice but to paint it all in black just to cover the badly rusted surface. If I were to paint it in light colour, the rust will still be showing even with numerous layers of paint. Anyway, it looks good after painting brightly coloured hydrangeas and roses. By the way I used black gesso before painting it with Charcoal background colour.
