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.
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.

I have a gas direct-vent fireplace, do I need a heat-resistance paint on the wood mantel?
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.

will work well. These paints hold better to brick and do not lose their color like aerosols will.

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?
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.

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?

What is the best paint to use in the interior of a masonry wood burning fireplace box?
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.
