EZ sand works best, its like bondo but soupier so it really settles in those pits...sands much easier too you can start with 180 grit.....Theres another type called metal glaze also from evercoat thats self etching that might be better for going over bare metal....I know its only a towel holder but still if it were me I would clean up that rusty,pitted metal with some ospho then epoxy it (reduced 10-20%) so it goes on smooth like paint no orange peel (no sanding) fill any pitts with the ez sand applied with a rubber squeegie insted of a plastic one (again,very little sanding) one or two more coats of epoxy and your ready to paint.....They'll look better than new.....also if you use SPI epoxy it comes in white and has a semi gloss shine,so you might not even want to use paint they'll have an aged look...
