I want to paint my brick chimney. The fireplace is on one side and the front is a wall oven. The bricks are very old. Can this be done and what can i use?

Answer:Brick can certainly be painted, however it will require careful preparation in order to ensure longevity. The brick will need to be thoroughly cleaned, using a wire brush and appropriate cleaner. Any soot stains MUST be removed in their entirety.
Once the brick is clean, a high quality acrylic paint can be used. It is important to discuss heat ratings with the retailer of the paint, as some brands are better than others. If the paint gets too hot, it can discolor and peel easily.

We have a wood burning interior fireplace we are updating. The inside of the fireplace is firebrick that is stained black. Would this paint be appropriate to use to freshen it up?
By Will M. on May 24, 2016
Answer:This product can be used to coat the metal chassis of a wood burning prefabricated fireplace, but it is not recommended for painting masonry or refractory panels. The paint does not adhere well to this type of material and will flake and discolor relatively quickly, if you are planning on continuing to burn wood.

Can you explain in detail what I should do after spraying on the paint in my fireplace to get the best results? What does it mean by curing and how would I heat the paint to 250 degrees?
By Brennan W. on April 28, 2015
Answer:In order to properly cure the paint, you will need to build a small fire and allow it to burn at 250 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. This will harden the paint and extend it's lifespan.

I want to do some touch up painting to my oven. It has an almond gloss. I didn't see the sheen on this can of paint. Is it flat or gloss? What would you recommend? I know that I need something for high heat, and this certainly is.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 17, 2013
Answer:This particular paint will dry to a satin finish, as will all of our high heat paints. The only exception is if high gloss or flat is specified in the item description. The product will work fine for touching up your oven, but we do not have this shade in anything other than the satin finish.

What do I paint the interior of my fireplace with? I'd like to paint it almond. Do you have that color? I'll paint the grate black.
By eFireplaceStore on September 23, 2014
Answer:The high temperature paint you are viewing now is the best product to do this with. After painting, the fireplace should be cured to allow the paint to harden completely, as it will generally have to be heated to approximately 250 degrees to meet its advertised operating temperature.

I'm looking for different colors, not just black. Do you have or know where can purchase yellow and green high temp paint?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 20, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, we do not have a manufacturer that carries any yellow paint, however we do have a couple of shades of green.
Please advise if you are looking for a lighter color of green or need a color that is closer to forest or hunter green.

I'd like to use this paint for re-finishing my kitchen gas cook-top. How well will it stand up to cleaning and scrubbing? Do you think it will dry hard enough for this application? How well will it hold up to the direct flame of the gas burner? Thanks for any thoughts you might have.
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 6, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, none of our stove paints are designed for use in this type of application. While they can withstand radiant heats up to 1200 degrees as well as direct contact with flames. They are not listed or tested for use in close proximity to food prep surfaces.
