Can I paint a gold plate chandelier bronze?

I have a perfectly good crystal and gold plated chandelier I just want a change and wondered if I could paint the gold bronze and leave the crystal bowls intact?

I've done this several times and have had great success with Rustoleum spray paint. The fumes get strong, so definitely do it outside if you can. Wear a face mask because when you inhale, the paint goes up your nose. I also recommend getting one of the comfort spray can grip things so you don't kill your finger:

Oh, and I used rubbing alcohol to seriously wipe down the surfaces before priming to make so there was no oil or grit on it.

Happy painting.
