The first thing I did was give these a really good cleaning. I used vinegar, water and a scrubby sponge. While researching online how to paint brass everyone says to prime first. Well I'm lazy and the store had spray paint with primer in it! That counts right? I ended up using Krylon Cover Maxx. I did several light coats until it was completely covered. Torture! I hate waiting for paint to dry. After the white, I took some Valspar Tanslucent Color Glaze(Mocha) and applied it with a q-tip into the areas that I wanted a little darker. I wiped it off with a dry rag and played with it until I got the look I wanted. I think the glaze really helps the design pop.
