How To Refinish Brass Fixtures?

Good Questions

Q: I found some cheap but nice quality light fixtures for my room. They are ridiculously outdated but far too nice to scrap or try my luck somewhere else. I have 3 that i want to paint but I'm not sure how to do that correctly. (Do i sand it first? Remove the tarnish?) It's not really clear to me and I can't find a straight answer elsewhere.
