I'm replacing my natural gas fire logs with a diamond fire glass. The fireplace interior is porcelain brick. Can the porcelain brick be painted with a high heat paint made for metal?
By Will M. on February 5, 2015
Answer:The simplest solution would be to remove the porcelain panels and paint the interior of the firebox with any of our high-temp paints. Please note, the paint will need to cure and may emit an odor during this process.

Will this paint repair the inside of my fireplace where I wiped a silvery, bare spot? Do I need to do anything else to fix it?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 11, 2013
Answer:The black appliance paint you are viewing would be an excellent product to touch up the exposed metal. It is likely that the paint will continue to flake and as such, I recommend using a paint thinner to completely remove the paint along the top shelf. After removing the paint completely, this component can be repainted with the new appliance paint.

I want to paint the interior of a new metal firebox with gas log kit. Do you recommend the Copperfield paint or Stove Bright, or another?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 8, 2014
Answer:Both of these paints should do the job for your application. Please note, however, that over time the paint may peel and crack due to the heat inside the firebox, depending on the BTU rating of your gas burner.

Is this the kind of paint used to paint the rock on the bottom of a gas fireplace? We are installing a Heat N Glo fireplace and it says to paint the rock on the bottom after installing it.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 14, 2013
Answer:We are not a Heat & Glo dealer, so we cannot tell you what brand they recommend. However, this paint is indeed intended for use inside the firebox of a gas fireplace. We recommend checking with a local Heat & Glo dealer for more information and confirmation.

How long after you spray this product on your firebox do you have to wait until you have your first fire?
By Will M. on February 23, 2016
Answer:This will dry in about 20 minutes. After this, you should wait 4 hours before igniting your first fire. Once lit, you should moderate the gas for a low burn for 10 minutes, then increase the gas setting to a medium level for 60 minutes. Lastly, increase the setting to the highest level to burn as hot as possible for 60 minutes.

I need to paint the black metal surround of my fireplace. I specifically need to paint the band that is right behind the glass and goes across the top and one that goes across the bottom of my gas fireplace. Would this Stove Bright black gas firebox paint be the right paint to use? What paint that is already there is all blistered and peeling.
By Will M. on June 16, 2015
Answer:This would be the correct product. Please note that the existing paint will need to be removed with paint thinner prior to painting and the paint will have to cure. During this process, the paint will emit harmless fumes and smoke that will dissipate after several hours.

Can you use this Stove Bright black gas appliance firebox paint over an enamel stove top?
By eFireplaceStore on October 26, 2015
Answer:I do not recommend using an aerosol to paint over enamel paint, as they do not cover or adhere well. Most home improvement and specialty paint stores will offer custom paints that are designed to work over enamels.

I can't seem to get a straight answer as to whether this paint should be used on a brick firebox of a wood burning fireplace. Can you help me?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 10, 2013
Answer:This paint should only be used for this purpose if the wood burning fireplace will no longer be used. Temperatures in a wood fire can get high enough that the paint will begin to discolor and will eventually flake. If the firebox will continue to be used, the inside should be resurfaced with a thin parging mix.
