Want to make a planter

Hello. I'm not sure where I should post this but thought I would start here. I have a picture (out of a book) of a beautiful blue (sort of a dark cornflower blue) metal planter with what looks like gold-leaf ball feet that I want to duplicate. Lo and behold I found almost the exact metal container at Michael's but I'm at a loss as to where I can find metal feet that I can paint gold. I plan to sand the container so I can paint it blue and paint the balls and attach them to the planter. Any suggestions as to where I can find metal balls that can withstand a planted planter (the planter is about 20 inches along and about 12 inches wide). Thanks in advance.
