I would like to paint the brass around my fireplace doors a brushed nickel color. Can you suggest a paint that will work?

By Suzanne from Seattle, WA on December 18, 2015
I have a 25 year old free standing stove that I run a fire in daily. It has rust marks but still performs well. Which stove paint would work for me?
By eFireplaceStore on December 21, 2015
Answer:Any of our 1,200 degree Stove Bright paints work well for refinishing gas appliances and stoves, both inside the firebox and on the exterior of the body.
By Cheryl on November 9, 2012
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
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.
By Karen from Denver, CO on August 21, 2014
What is the average coverage amount for one 12oz can of Stove Bright high heat spray?
By eFireplaceStore on August 21, 2014
Answer:Per the manufacturer, average coverage is 6 square feet for a 12 ounce can. Average coverage depends mostly on the existing color being covered and the type of metal being painted.
By Denise from Milwaukee on August 8, 2014
I am looking for high temp paint for a wood burning stove. I want it for an accent color on the door. I'm looking for Mojave Red or Shimmering rose. something close to a burgundy. Could you please help me?
By eFireplaceStore on August 11, 2014
Per the manufacturer, the StoveBright Mojave Red
will be the best color to accent your stove with, as it is a very close match to burgundy.
By Julie from Breckenridge, CO on September 11, 2013
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.
By Alsion from Kenosha Park, WI on February 17, 2014
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.
By Brad from Denver, CO on July 3, 2013
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.
By Adrian from FL on August 19, 2016
I have a gas direct-vent fireplace, do I need a heat-resistance paint on the wood mantel?
By Will M. on August 19, 2016
Answer:High temp paint is normally not needed, so long as the mantel is installed at the recommended clearances provided in the installation manual for the fireplace. If installed and painted correctly, the painted mantel surface should never reach temperatures close enough to call for paint made to withstand 1200 degrees like what we have to offer. Also, all of the high temperature paint we offer will dry to a matte finish that is not typically sought after when painting a mantel.

By Dave from Leonard, MI on March 1, 2013
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
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 Nancy from Martin, GA on March 15, 2017
Which product is the best choice for painting bricks inside a gas fireplace (preferably a grey shade)?

I have a cast aluminum firepit table and chairs that has become discolored due to the heat. It was once a beautiful brown set. Do you think they honey brown spray would work on something like this?
By eFireplaceStore on May 28, 2014
Answer:The high temperature aerosol paints can indeed be used for this purpose. Cast aluminum offers a good surface to take paint. It will only need to be cleaned thoroughly before applying paint.
By Aggie from Grandview, WA on February 10, 2016
I have a Audra fire gas insert that is green with brass trim and I want to paint it a soft beige. What do I have to do to prep the stove?
By Will M. on February 11, 2016
Answer:The paint we offer will indeed cover the brass, but please follow these steps:
1. Wipe down the brass areas with a multi-surface cleaner to remove any residue that is present.
2. Using 80 grit sandpaper, lightly sand these areas until the surface is roughened.
3. Using a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar, wipe down these areas again to remove all dust.
4. Begin applying the paint in very light coats. A total of 5 or 6 coats will be necessary, with approximately 5 minutes between coats. Make sure to avoid runs.
By Mike from Raleigh, NC on September 26, 2014
I painted the inside of my fireplace but I decided to put gas logs in it. The paint I used was a basic white latex and now I'm concerned that the paint will not hold up to the heat. If I paint over the latex with your high heat paint, would it work or would the latex blister behind it and come off?
By eFireplaceStore on September 26, 2014
Answer:The high temperature paint we carry is resistant to heat, but it will transmit heat to the material it is applied to. As such, the latex paint behind it will indeed bubble. The interior of the fireplace will need to be stripped of paint before applying the high temperature coating.
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
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 Mary from Indianapolis, IN on March 13, 2015
I am looking for a paint that I can paint a brick fireplace with that can stand high temperatures. I have a wood stove that sits on a fireplace hearth and half-way into the fireplace opening so the brick will get very hot. What can I use and are there different colors?
By Kevin E. on March 15, 2015
Answer:Any of our high heat paints found on this page would serve well for this application. A thorough cleaning of the brick would be recommended prior to painting.
By Jolynne from Borger, TX on June 28, 2015
I need to paint my brass fireplace screen that has glass doors. I need a color that is similar to rubbed bronze but a very dark brown with a matte or satin finish. I prefer not to have a shiny finish. Which paint would you recommend for that purpose? We do have a hot fires in the winter.
By Will M. on June 29, 2015
Either the Metallic Rich Brown
or the Honey Glo Brown
would be good choices for your project. The Honey Glo may be a slightly better choice, as it has more bronze in its base coloration.
By Jan from Dallas, TX on August 11, 2015
I would like a spray paint for my fireplace doors and frame which is the closest in color to oil rubbed bronze. What color do you recommend?
By Will M. on August 12, 2015
By Peter from Boston, MA on June 27, 2017
I have a cast iron 'vessel' that holds water to humidify the room when I fire up my wood stove. The paint is failing, rust, etc. I have arranged to have it thoroughly cleaned by sand blasting (it is important because its top is a steam breathing multi-hued dragon), but am at a loss for a finish. Will one of these products do the job? The container is a 10 inch oval with 4 inch high sides.
By Owen on June 27, 2017
Answer:Any one of those hi-temperature paints will be sufficient to re-paint your dragon steamer. As far as coverage, I would say that one should do the job quite well.
By Ian from Orange County, CA on January 30, 2017
What paint is safe to use inside the fireplace to repaint the black grill that holds the fake logs?
By Will M. on January 31, 2017
Answer:As direct flame should never come in contact with any of the paint we offer after being applied, we would not be able to recommend a product.
By Lynnsey from NY on December 8, 2014
Would using a stove paint on an aluminum chimney be as effective as buying a matte powder coated chimney?
By eFireplaceStore on December 9, 2014
Answer:Powder coating will be a thicker layer of paint than standard high temperature aerosol paint, but it will be overkill in most applications. Standard aerosol paint will hold up to the elements for decades in almost all installations. The only difference between the two that is most noticeable is the high gloss appearance of powder coating. The high temperature aerosol paint will dry to a matte finish and is not available in a high gloss variation.
By Coni from Hutchinson, KS on June 28, 2016
Can I paint the vent located outside from my gas fireplace? If so, what paint do you recommend?
By Will M. on June 28, 2016
Answer:Any of the 1200 degree paints we offer could be used, but you may need to roughen the surface of your vent components so the paint will adhere.
By Anna from Oh on July 10, 2013

Do you need to prime the firebox of a fireplace prior to painting it with heat resistant paint?
By Brennan W. on May 26, 2015
Answer:While it does not need to be primed, it does need to be cleaned before applying the high temperature paint.
By Kate from San Diego, CA on July 31, 2015
I want to paint eh inserts in my gas fireplace. What kind of paint should I use?
By Will M. on August 3, 2015
Answer:Ceramic panels can be coated with a high temperature paint, such at the StoveBright product line. The paint will require heat to cure and may release a slight odor during the initial curing process, but the paint should not release an odor after the fact.
By Joe from NY on February 10, 2014

By sean from Petaluma, CA on October 21, 2012
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 Bob from Marysville, WA on October 2, 2015
Can I paint the brass details of a fireplace, its surround and doors?

I need to repaint the inside of my fireplace with a high gloss, high temperature black paint to match the front sides which are still glossy. What do you recommend? I prefer to use a brush instead of spray can?
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.
By Alex from Silsbee, TX on December 2, 2015
What surface preparation will be required before applying your Stove or Fireplace paint? What is the finish? What is the ratio of square footage coverage per can?
By Brennan W. on December 2, 2015
Answer:The area will need to be cleaned of any dust or debris before applying the paint. We carry paints that will be labeled either glossy, flat, or satin. Per the manufacturer, average coverage is 6 square feet for a 12 ounce can.
By Michelle from NY on October 15, 2016

By eFireplaceStore on November 30, 2015

By Pamela from Stanford, KY on September 29, 2016

Can I use this paint on the grates for my gas cook top? Can I also use it on the cook top itself?
By Will M. on June 14, 2016

By Adam from San Antonio, TX on May 14, 2014
I am looking to paint the infrared emitters on my Charbroil grill. I bought replacements made of stainless steel and would like to know which paint I can use to protect the SS from the corrosive effects of fat drippings and water. I need a paint that can hold up to a direct flame as well as liquid from cooking meats. Any ideas that would not degrade under the direct flame?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 15, 2014
Answer:The only product that I can think of would be a high temperature ceramic coating. Ceramic paints can usually handle temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees without degrading and releasing harmful gases. When dealing with food, a ceramic paint that is specifically formulated for grills and food prep appliances should be used. A specialty paint store should be able to supply you with this product, although it may be special order.
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.
By Dana from Huntingtown, MD on April 7, 2014
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 Jean from MN on February 2, 2017
Do you have touch up paint (rather than spry paint)?

By Una from KY on December 29, 2014
I want to change the color of both the tiles and the brick on this fireplace which is terracotta at the moment. Is there a spray safe enough to do both?
By eFireplaceStore on December 30, 2014
Answer:The stove and fireplace paints you are viewing now can certainly be used for this purpose. The high temperature rating of these products would allow you to coat the tile hearth and surrounding brick with ease. The products are not as ideal for the inside of the firebox however, as high enough temperatures are achieved inside the fireplace that the paint can lose its color.
By Will from Dayton, Ohio on December 30, 2016
Is there anything (other than paint) on buck stove to cover bare spots?
By Will M. on December 30, 2016

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 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
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 Jack Williams from Lodi, California on December 7, 2016
How do I remove stove bright paint from glass?
By Brennan W. on December 7, 2016
Answer:Per the manufacturer, you would want to either gently use a razor to edge the paint off, or to use a lacquer thinner and a very soft cloth (if this is done, you will need to be extremely careful because if the window has a finish, it will eat away at it).
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 Colby from firstname.lastname@example.org on May 16, 2014
I'm hoping to re-paint a free-standing metal fireplace (60's-70s style).
I don't know exactly how hot it gets, but it gets pretty darn hot. Will your stove paint work?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 16, 2014
Answer:Our stove paints can withstand prolonged exposure to temperatures up to 1,200 degrees without losing their color or degrading. For higher temperatures, ceramic coatings must be used. Ceramic paint can usually be obtained from a local auto parts store and some home improvement stores.
By Janet from North Carolina on November 13, 2012

By Mark from Seattle, WA on August 27, 2014
My chimney chase is stucco clad and has a short horizontal concrete ledge that needs to be painted to be made waterproof and of course algae/mold/moss resistant. Oh and waterproof first and foremost. I already scraped off the vegetation on the concrete ledge that was exposed to the elements of weather and need to know how to waterproof concrete since I believe water has permeated into the sealed walls and has damaged them. What would you suggest?
By eFireplaceStore on August 27, 2014
My recommendation is to use a product such as the CrownSeal Pre-Mixed Flexible Waterproof Coating - 2 Gallon Tub
. This product is a thick, brush on crown sealing compound that flexes with temperature changes and creates an impermeable water barrier. It will also prevent the occurrence of algae and moss on the crown, as it seals all porous openings, preventing moisture from lingering. The product will usually last for 12 to 15 years in most applications.

My tenant used a caustic cleaner on the grates and surface burner caps of my gas range and removed a lot of the original finish. Can I use this product on those stove parts to restore the finish?
By eFireplaceStore on February 8, 2016
Answer:Unfortunately, no. The paint applied to most ranges is a purpose formulated enamel type coating that will not give off gas like most high temperature paints will. This generally has to be special ordered from the manufacturer of the range.

Can you use Rutland stove paint on masonry fireplaces?
on November 9, 2012
Answer:Indeed, you may use Rutland stove paint in a masonry application. The surface should be as clean and dry as possible. Also, remember that multiple light coats are better than few thick coats.

What is the best paint to use in the interior of a masonry wood burning fireplace box?
By Will M. on September 15, 2015
Painting the inside of a wood burning fireplace requires that you first clean the interior in order to prepare the surface. A product such as Muriatic acid works best. It should be handled carefully and used with heavy rubber gloves, as it can burn quite easily. After cleaning, a product such as the Rutland 1,200 Degree Black Stove Paint
can be applied.

I need a firebrick paint that's a rubbed bronze color to repaint my outside lights. Our house painter said that the firebrick paints would withstand the heat of Arizona summers. Do you have that color or a color close to it?
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.

Will this paint peel?
on November 9, 2012
Answer:All of our high-heat paint will peel if subjected to the temperatures achieved inside of a wood burning fireplace. If you have a gas fireplace, the paint will hold up considerably better. Please reply with your application and we may be able to offer a suggestion on a particular paint. We look forward to your response. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

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.

We have a brass fireplace surround and trim around the doors. What would be the best refinish process? Could a primer be used instead of sanding the brass finish?
By eFireplaceStore on June 10, 2014
Answer:Even when a primer is used, paint does not adhere well to the surface of highly polished materials, such as brass and stainless steel. As such, the surface will indeed need to be sanded to prepare it. The surface can be roughed up by using a 300 to 400 grit sandpaper, then wiped down with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water to remove the residual sanding material, as well as any soot or oils that are present. High temperature paint can then be applied in several light coatings, approximately 10 to 15 minutes apart from one another.
By Cheryl from San Antonio, TX on September 15, 2015
I purchase a stove approximately 2 years ago. Due to weather and my using it in the winter, it has become a bit tacky and rusty looking. What would you suggest that I purchase to bring it up to a nice looking appearance? I know that I can not re-store the copper on it so I thought that painting it would be an option. This is a wood burning stove.

I want to paint the brick around my fireplace. What kind of paint do I need to use? It gets fairly hot around the opening.
on November 9, 2012
Answer:Any of our high temperature paint would work just fine for your application. Is there a specific color in which you are interested? We'd be happy to search for a color for you. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
By Sharon from CA on March 19, 2016
Which paint can I use on a brick fire box?
By eFireplaceStore on March 21, 2016
Most aerosol high temperature paints do not adhere well to brick, but a high silicone brush on paint such as the Rutland 1,200 Degree Black Stove Paint - 1 Pint
will work well. These paints hold better to brick and do not lose their color like aerosols will.
By Robert on November 9, 2012

Iím looking for a spray paint that I can use on my fire place insert. Itís 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 Ė any suggestions? Also, what spray paint to you sell that would work for this application?
on November 9, 2012
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:
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
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.

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?
on November 9, 2012
Answer: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.
By Ray on November 9, 2012
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
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

Can the ceramic panels that came with my propane fireplace be painted?
By eFireplaceStore on December 10, 2014
Answer:Ceramic panels can indeed be coated with a high temperature paint, such at the StoveBright product line. The paint will require heat to cure and may release a slight odor during the initial curing process, but the paint should not release an odor after the fact.

What is the best paint for the interior of a fireplace which will be exposed to flames?
By eFireplaceStore on January 15, 2015
Answer:The high temperature stove paint that we carry will be the best product for your purposes, but even it can discolor at temperatures greater than 1,200 degrees. Ideally, castable refractory mortar would be used to line the interior of the firebox, as it can withstand much higher temperatures.

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
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.

Hello, I want to paint all of the gold around the door and frame of my pellet stove insert. What type of black paint would I need? Would I need to prime?
By Chris C. on July 22, 2014
Any of our Stove Paint & Fireplace Paint
can be used to paint over the gold trim of the glass on your pellet stove. To ensure a proper bond, I would sand the gold down to roughen up the surface allowing the paint to have something to stick to, but I would also use a high temperature primer to ready the surface as well.

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 Ang from Australia on May 2, 2014
I have a copper wood burning fireplace, can I paint the copper with a paint that is safe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 5, 2014
Answer:Copper can be painted with one of our high temperature fireplace paints. Like stainless steel and brass, copper should be prepared by lightly sanding it with 400 grit sandpaper, in order to rough up the surface. This will help with adhesion of the paint. After sanding, the surface should be thoroughly wiped down and allowed time to dry fully. You can then apply any of our 1,200 or 1,400 degree Stove Bright or A.W. Perkins paints. Several light coatings will work better than a couple of heavier coats.
By Susan from Cheshire, CT on November 12, 2013

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
Answer:Our high-heat stove paint is not suitable for use in a masonry wood-burning fireplace. The high heats from the wood fire will cause the paint to peel and crack.
