Default painting a lanthorn

I am making a round 18C ship's lantern. It will have horn or mica panes and be painted (as per the original)
The body will be a matt finish. The top and bottom will be bright of necessity (read stock size).The main question is how are the bright pieces prepped for paint? Secondary, the best way to attach the panes to the body.
Thanks for your help

I'm not sure on how this is finished but I sure hope you share the final piece with us when it's done.

Maybe someone will chime in soon.

Thanks for the question.
