Because of the high heat of fireplaces, their surround shields, vent pipes, stoves, and grills, paints for them are specially formulated. We stock spray cans in many colors to match your existing finish or create a new one. The new coat should maintain its color and last for a long time.
Once you have thoroughly prepared the surface and applied two or three light coats of the paint, wait four hours or overnight before starting a fire to set the paint. Then burn at a low flame for ten minutes, after which increase the flame to medium for another 60 and, finally, as hot as you can for a final 60 minutes. During that final period, there may be some visible smoke and unpleasant odor, so maintain good ventilation.
