Do you mean to paint an image, or to spray paint the entire cap?

I only use factory colored caps, but if I was to paint them, I'd use "Rust-o-leum" paint, as it's the best (that I've used so far) for painting metal. I used to refinish furniture for a living for an antique shop, sometimes customers just wanted an updated paint job on outdoor furniture. I'd always use this. It also covers rust.

If you want the very best look, you should prime the caps, paint twice and then seal with clear spray. Most people go the quicker/cheaper way and just use paint. More expensive name brand paint has better colors and covers better. HTH!
