Stove Paint & Fireplace Paint

A good coat of paint does more than just improve the appearance of your hearth appliance and its components; properly applied paint protects your fireplace or stove from rust and helps to maximize longevity. That's why we carry paint for literally every type of job. We have paint for your stove, firebox, surround, vent pipe, and even your roof flashing.

I would like to paint the outside of my fireplace enclosure that is now gold. I would like to change the color. What products would you recommend? I am looking to make it a more updated color, something in the bronze family.
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Polished brass surrounds, such as your fireplace enclosure, can be tricky to paint. These types of high luster surfaces must be sanded with a fine grit sandpaper prior to being painted, in order to get the paint to stick. A 150 grit paper will usually do very well. You will then need to clean the surface to remove any resulting dust, prior to painting the surround. Once you have completed preparation, I would recommend using one of our Stove Bright paints to cover this enclosure. It will most likely require 2-3 cans to completely cover. Several light coats are recommended, adding a new coat each time the previous coat is still tacky. Please view the below links for colors you may find suitable: Stove Bright 1. Stove Bright 2. Stove Bright 3. You may view a swatch of each color on the color card that is on each item page.

We are looking for a heat resistant stove paint for our vent pipe. We want to match as closely as possible to the Lopi Cape Cod Hybrid-- Oxford Brown Enamel finish as is possible. What do you suggest?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 12, 2013

Answer:
Unfortunately, it does not appear that the range of Stove Bright colors that we offer give a perfect match. Looking at the photo from the link you provided, the stove has a finish that falls squarely between Bark Brown and Russett. As such, it may be prudent to check with your Lopi dealer to see if this stove finish is available as an aerosol for matching the stovepipe.

Are stove and firebox/fireplace paint the same or do you need specific firebox paint?

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 18, 2014

Answer:
Stove and firebox paint are indeed the same and usually have temperature ratings of 1,200 to 1,400 degrees.

It is not recommended to paint the concrete liners in a manufactured fireplace or the brick in a masonry fireplace. However, metal panels can be painted without an issue.

How can I repair a place where I accidentally wiped the paint off with an acetone rag?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on July 5, 2013

Answer:
In most cases, it is best to repaint the entire affected panel in order for the best match to be achieved. A wide range of different finishes and variations in color can make a localized touch up of the paint nearly impossible. I recommend stripping the paint from the entire panel, then painting it with a similar paint color and finish.

I have an old Volcano III see attachments. What paint would you recommend? It will not be used to heat water as the water pipes have been removed from the unit. It will be used to heat a barn.

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 1, 2013

Answer:
Any of our Stove Bright or A.W. Perkins wood stove paints can be used to refinish this unit. I recommend sanding and cleaning the unit as best you can prior to applying the new coat of paint. After sanding, use a damp cloth to wipe the unit down and remove and leftover sanding residue. Stove paint adheres best when applied in numerous, very light coats.

By Emily from Pennsylvannia on November 17, 2012
I have a damaged door from a Franco Belge stove. I'm looking for a specific green paint or one as close as possible. The name of the color on this particular unit is Majolica Green.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 19, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, we do not carry a high temperature paint that is this exact color. We do have several shades of green paint, but they are much darker or lighter than the shade you are looking for. Our Emerald Green Stovebright Paint will likely be the closest to your shade.

By Brad from Indiana on February 19, 2014
I want to paint the inside of a woodburning fireplace that has a brick liner. What is the best product and how do I prep it?




By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 19, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, there is not a product on the market that can be used to effectively coat brick liner panels. The paint tends to flake and lose its color very quickly, due to the expansion and contraction of the panels. There are hearth cleaners available, such as the AW Perkins Brick and Stone Cleaner that do a good job of cleaning and restoring the original color to the panels, but the only other option would be to replace the panels entirely.

By Anna from Oh on July 10, 2013

Can I paint brick and mortar?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 22, 2012

Answer:
It is not recommended to paint over brick and mortar, as the high temperatures often cause the paint to discolor and separate quickly.

The better option would be to apply a thin coating of refractory mortar over the existing material. This will seal and protect any damaged brick, while enhancing the thermal efficiency of the fireplace.

By Donna from Mammoth Lakes, California on November 14, 2013
Can I use your paint to paint my gas fireplace logs and if so, which one? I would like to paint them white.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 14, 2013

Answer:
Unfortunately, no. The high temperature paints that we carry are not designed for extended exposure to flame. Gas logs are painted or dyed at the factory with special high temperature ceramic paint, which are not usually available to the public. You will likely need to replace the log set, if you wish to change the style or color.

By Sam from VA on January 16, 2014
I need to paint my cast iron andirons which have direct contact with flames. Which spray paint would work the best?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 16, 2014

Answer:
Unfortunately, we do not carry an aerosol paint that can be used for this purpose. The only finishes available that can properly coat cast iron that comes into contact with flame is a high temperature ceramic or porcelain paint. However, both of these paint types must be hardened by a special curing procedure and are not available in aerosol forms.

I would like to paint the black metal facade of my fireplace (original from a 1985 construction). It's scratched and the silver is showing through in many areas. Do I need to buff and prime before using your paint product?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 6, 2013

Answer:
It is recommended that you thoroughly clean the surround before painting. Please see below for a recommendation for flat and satin black paint options:

Stove Bright Flat Black Paint - 43205

Stove Bright Satin Black Touch Up Paint - 43200

By John from Lake Tahoe, CA on December 14, 2013
I just purchased and installed a Thelin Parlour 3000 Natural Gas stove. I did the first firing on low for 2 hours then medium for 2 hours, then high for 1 hour, then turned down to medium for an hour or so, then just the pilot for the night. This morning I fired the stove back up and ran it on medium and then high for 15 minutes or so. The flame looked great, but I noticed that the paint was peeling inside of the firebox. It only seems to be peeling where the flames touch the metal. Is this normal to see the paint peeling so quickly?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 16, 2013

Answer:
While I was not able to find specific initial burn instructions in the manual for this appliance, it is typical for manufacturers to recommend an initial 4 hour burn at medium to low heat. Because this was performed, the paint within the firebox should have been completely cured and hardened. It is typical to see paint within the firebox peel after several years of use, but it seems that the firebox must not have been prepped properly before painting. I recommend checking with the dealer the stove was purchased from to see if they know of a history of this issue and what may be done to correct it.

By Teresa from Newberg, Oregon on October 2, 2013
I have a NZ6000 black stove. We have only used glass cleaner on it that we purchased at our dealer, but it has removed the black paint where it was over sprayed onto the paint to the corners of the doors. What would you recommend to fix this issue? Is there a way to sand and remove the paint, or should we just touch up the area? It is about 6 inches wide by 3 inches tall at the top outer edges of both doors.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 3, 2013

Answer:
Based on the appearance, it will be necessary to sand around the bare areas and apply paint so that it overlaps the existing finish. Touch up paint is available. Based on the size of the areas, two containers will be needed.

On a side note, I do find it odd that the damage is occurring in the exact same area. The glass cleaner may be acting as an agent that is degrading the paint, but I would also check to make sure the door gaskets are sealing properly. It appears in the first photo that some slight corrosion and cavitation is occurring, which is likely a symptom of a door gasket issue. The next time you burn the unit, I recommend using a digital thermometer to check the temperature in those exact spots. If it is significantly higher, the gaskets may be leaking and will need to be reseated to keep the issue from happening again.

How much coverage does each can provide?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 7, 2014

Answer:
Average coverage for 2 coats is 10 to 12 square feet, although each application will vary, based on the type of metal being painted and color of paint being covered.

By Matt from Vero Beach, FL on November 4, 2013
I built my own outdoor stone fire pit. I have fire brick ringing the inside to protect the stone and mortar. I was told I should paint the fire bricks with a fireplace spray paint. Does anyone know which of the products listed I should use?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 5, 2013

Answer:
It is not common to paint firebrick, but it can be done if it is not subjected to temperatures that will regularly exceed 500 degrees. Any higher of a temperature will usually cause the paint to flake, due to the expansion and contraction of the firebrick.

Any of our high temperature Stove Bright brand paint will work for this purpose.

By Bev from Rockwall, Texas on January 3, 2014
We have a gas fireplace and the tubing from the gas pipe to the gas logs is yellow. Can we use your spray paint on the tubing so the yellow doesn't stick out like a sore thumb?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2014

Answer:
Usually, yellow flexible gas lines are dipped in a high temperature coating that is designed to prevent corrosion. It does not take paint well at all. These lines are intended for installation in applications where they will not be seen. The line should be replaced with a black painted gas line, such as the Hearth Products Controls Standard-Capacity Black Stainless Steel Flex Gas Line - 18 Inch.

By Lisa from Florida on February 12, 2014
I want to change the color of trim on my fireplace doors. They are a shinny brass and I want them to be like a nickel or pewter. What should I buy?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 12, 2014

Answer:
We offer a high temperature pewter paint that can be used to refinish your doors. The item is the Copperfield Pewter Gas Fireplace Surround Paint - 43407. High luster finishes are difficult to paint, but it can be done. You will first need to use a 250 or 300 grit sandpaper to sand the brass surface completely. When done, wipe down the doors with a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. Allow it to dry fully. You can then apply several very light coats of paint until the doors are fully covered. Apply each subsequent coat while the paint is still tacky. Approximately 10 minutes between coats.

By Rob from Panama City Beach, Florida on September 17, 2013
I have a ceramic fire box in my see through wood burning fireplace. Will the high heat stove paint properly adhere to ceramic tiles?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 17, 2013

Answer:
While the paint will initially adhere to the ceramic panels, it is very likely that it will discolor and begin to flake after a few fires. The ceramic panels usually must be replaced once they begin to discolor or crack, as there is not a product that can effectively restore or patch them.

By Janet from North Carolina on November 13, 2012

Can you use Rutland stove paint on masonry fireplaces?
on November 9, 2012

What paint should I get to paint my gas insert a bronze color?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on July 19, 2013

Answer:
In my opinion, the Stove Bright Metallic Rich Brown Stove Paint has the most bronze to it, with the Honey Glo Brown Stovebright Stove Paint being a close, but lighter second. I have seen both of these colors in person and the metallic rich brown most closely mimics burnished bronze.

What is the best paint for the interior of my fireplace? It is built of a light colored brick. Fireplace is about eight years old. I plan to install a fireglass and a gas burner.
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Please see these recommendations for painting the interior of your fireplace: Firebox Paint 1 Firebox Paint 2 Please note these paints will not last more than a season or two before the heat of the flames will cause it to peel and crack. None of our paints will withstand direct contact to flames over time. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

The inside of the firebox in my new house's fireplace is primarily metal. It is rusty and I want to clean it up and paint it. The high heat paints that I have looked at so far say they are not intended for direct exposure to flames. Is there anything you would recommend?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, as you have experienced, we would have to echo that sentiment. None of our high-heat paint is recommended for use involving direct contact with flames. While it may hold up for a season or two, it will eventually peel due to heat inside the firebox. Here are a couple of our 12oz spray black high-heat paint: Firebox Paint 1 Firebox Paint 1 Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

By T from Mesa, AZ on April 12, 2013

By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on April 12, 2013

Answer:
Unfortunately, we do not offer a color close to the oil-rubbed bronze that you desire. We apologize for this inconvenience.

By John on November 9, 2012
Will this paint peel?

By Gary on November 9, 2012
Can the outdoor square termination vent for a built-in direct vent fireplace be painted? I believe it is a Simpson Dura-Vent Part #984. The fireplace itself is a Fireplace Xtrordinair 36 DV XL using propane. And, if it can, given the color of the logs on which it is located, do you have a suggested color?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Painting your termination cap will in no way negatively affect its performance. However, you may have a difficult time getting paint to adhere to its surface. The galvanized steel surface of the cap may need to be roughed up a bit to ensure that the paint does indeed stick and stay put. Simpson DuraVent has no rule prohibiting that you paint this component. However, it may be wise to research literature produced by the makers of your Xtrordinair, just to make sure that they do not take issue with this practice. In my opinion, a standard flat black paint would do the job for this application. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

By Walter on November 9, 2012
What kind of paint do I need for the inside of a fireplace?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Depending on if you have a wood burning fireplace or a gas fireplace, you will have varying success with our high-temperature paint. Whenever you paint the interior of a wood burning fireplace, the high-temp paint we sell will eventually peel and crack due to the excessive heat and contact with the flames. In a gas unit, it will have more life, but we still cannot guarantee how long it will last. Assuming you want to paint it black, please see this item: Stove Paint Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

on November 9, 2012

Answer:
We do have some high-temp black spray paint that you can use to touch up your firebox. Please be advised, however, that if you have a wood-burning fireplace, the paint will eventually crack and peel due to the extreme heat. Please see these paints for an example of our selection: Stove Paint 1 Stove Paint 2 Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

By Mark on November 9, 2012
We want to paint the fire brick inside the fireplace. Can you tell me what paint to use?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
We do have some paint that can paint the inside of a firebox but, depending on if you are burning wood or gas, the longevity will vary. If you are painting the inside of a fireplace that you use to burn wood, the paint will eventually crack and peel due to the extreme heat. If it is a gas unit, it should last considerably longer, but we cannot guarantee any length of time. Assuming you prefer black, here are a couple of high-heat paints that will work with these disclaimers: Stove Paint Stove Paint Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

By Connie on November 9, 2012
I’m looking for a spray paint that I can use on my fire place insert. It’s currently chrome and I want to make it look more like nickel or gun metal. I assume I will need to rough up the chrome plating or sand it down to the metal – any suggestions? Also, what spray paint to you sell that would work for this application?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
You are indeed correct about sanding the surface of the insert. It can be difficult to get paint to stick to chrome and brass surfaces, but if you sand it lightly with a fine grit paper and then wipe it down thoroughly, this will usually be a good preparation for the stove. This paint would be the best item for your needs: Stove Paint. I recommend applying the paint in many light coats, applying again each time the first coat has gotten tacky. This will usually keep the paint from separating from the chrome later on.

By Debbie on November 9, 2012
My fireplace is made of white brick, but after 35 years it is looking pretty dingy. I was told to use Zinser 1-2-3 primer on it, but then what type paint would be best over the primer? Our walls surrounding it are gray barn siding panels.
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Given your description and the primer recommendation you have received, I am assuming that you are referring to the exterior masonry chimney, rather than the interior of the firebox. The Zinser 123 primer is a water based product that is not designed for high heat applications. The Zinser primer would indeed be a good base to apply to the exterior brick, prior to painting it with a high quality, exterior 100% acrylic paint. One other step that is recommended is to treat the brick for removal of any mold, staining, and efflorescence. All of these conditions are byproducts of moisture interaction with the brick and are very common conditions on chimneys. Any of these conditions can also cause the paint to separate over time. I recommend treating the chimney with a product such as this cleaner: Brick & Mortar Cleaner Once dry, you will have a good clean surface to apply the primer and paint to.

By Carol on November 9, 2012
I want to paint the inside of my fireplace (gas-wood-burning-fire brick) with black paint. Now it is black, grey, etc. What paint is recommended that is fire-proof, black, matte finish?

Unfortunately, we do not have any paint that is rated for direct contact with flames. As such, none of our paint will be fireproof. We apologize for the inconvenience.

I am trying to restore the grates on my Viking gas stove. Do you have a paint that will withstand the direct flame and heat from the stove?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, all of our stove paint is designed for use on heating appliances and not on cooking appliances. Indeed, we do not currently offer any paint that is rated for cooking appliances.

By Lee on November 9, 2012
We are in the process of building a fireplace. It will have a stone facade surround but I notices our builder used a dark red brick for the firebox that clashes in color with the stone facade. I was wondering if it would be possible to paint it a lighter color to match the stone facade and if you know whether this would meet code in Connecticut.
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Unfortunately, there is not a paint product made that can be used to coat the inside of the firebox. Due to the extreme heat and corrosive gases, every paint product will discolor and eventually begin to flake away from the brick. The only way to change the color of the brick would be to use a castable, high heat mortar. You would apply a thin coat of the mortar over the brick and this would change the color to the desired look. Unfortunately, you will loose the brick pattern, as the mortar will completely cover the existing brick. An example of this type of product can be seen here: High Heat Fireplace Cement.

By Joanne on November 9, 2012

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 14, 2013

I have a gas fireplace with gold trim on the front. I would like to update and paint the entire front of the gas fireplace. Will this paint work for that? I am also looking for an antique bronze. Something less black and more brown.

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 5, 2013

Answer:
Our high heat paints can indeed be used for this purpose. It is recommended to clean, then lightly sand the brass finish to give the paint something to adhere to. The Stove Bright Metallic Rich Brown Stove Paint - 43225 is a popular product for its bronze/brown finish.

By Carol from San Mateo, CA on October 26, 2013
I would like to change the color of the metal frame around this fireplace and also paint the interior. What paint and color do you suggest?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 28, 2013

Answer:
Paint color would be strictly up to your discretion. Matte black is always a popular choice, but you may choose to go with a color that best flows with your decor. I only recommend painting the interior of the fireplace if you do not plan on burning wood inside the unit. Wood fires are hot enough that the paint will flake from the liner panels, but gas fires will not cause this issue.

By Susan from Cheshire, CT on November 12, 2013
My fireplace is not used and is just for show. I would like to paint the interior bricks a different color. They are currently painted black along the back wall. Can I use the high temperature paint to create a different look (color) inside the fireplace? I was thinking of changing it to a metallic brown.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 12, 2013

Answer:
As long as the fireplace will indeed be just for appearance, you can indeed change the interior color of the unit with high temperature paint.

Can I use this paint on a masonry fireplace?

By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 5, 2012

I need a paint that is washable around a live fireplace. Can you help?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 19, 2013

Answer:
Our high temperature line of Stove Bright paints could be used for this application. They are able to be applied to masonry and metal surfaces alike. It is recommended to clean the surface to be painted thoroughly to remove any byproduct that exists. The area should be allowed to dry for 3 days before applying paint. You can then apply an initial "mist" coating of paint, which should be allowed to dry before applying subsequent coatings. The paint can be washed with a mild soap and water, whenever it requires cleaning. A nonabrasive cloth should be used to wipe down the surface.

By Chris on November 9, 2012
I'm trying to find options for black paint to touch up the inside of my gas fireplace. I had the fireplace serviced and the technician touched up the bare metal with what he called stove paint, but as soon as I turn on the fireplace the paint crackles and falls off leaving bare metal again. I see a number of different high temperature, stove, and fireplace paints on your website. Can you recommend the best option for my needs?
on November 9, 2012

Answer:
Please see this item, which is heat resistant up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit: Firebox Paint Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

I have a solid cast cement chimney and firebox made by Rampart General in the late 1970's. Of course, they are out of business. What is the best paint to use for inside of the firebox? I burn wood.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 17, 2013

Answer:
Unfortunately, the issue with painting the interior of a wood burning fireplace is that the paint will lose its color fairly rapidly. We simply do not offer a high temperature paint that can effectively be used for this application. The interior of the box could only be cleaned or skim coated with refractory cement to improve appearance.
