Has anyone painted the outside of their cast iron bath?

Hi, I'm having my bathroom done and having an old claw foot bath in but the outside of it is green and I want to change it.

Do I need to sand, prime (which primer?) and then use an oil eggshell, or do you know if I can just use oil eggshell straight on top of the current green (which is in good condition)? Thanks

You'd be fine to paint it - farrow and ball do both primers and paint for metal and I know they are ok for baths as lots of cast iron bath makers use their paints now www.farrow-ball.com/preparing-interior-metal/content/fcp-content
