Resurfacing is a great option for claw foot tubs. In resurfacing a claw foot tub it should be noted that the inside of the tube will need the special resurfacing materials. That is described in the Tub 1 tab. The outside of the tub can be painted with a metal bond rust resistant paints such as Krylon or Rustoleum. Note the beautiful shiny finish of the inside of the claw foot tub!
