I want to paint the brass coloured part of our gas fireplace grill black. I have noticed a couple of people have done that on this forum. Trixyblues, I think it was, used a special heat-resistant paint. Has anyone used just regular Tremclad. I already have a small can of the Tremclad in black that I would like to use but don't want the paint to bubble and peel off when we put the fire on.
Also my Tremclad is in glossy black and would that look okay or should it be matte?
Also did you sand the brass or use a base (forget what that stuff is called) to help the paint adhere.
It's funny but I never noticed the brass part of the fireplace until I saw some of the before and after shots here on the forum and now the brass looks so ugly and I notice it every time I go into the family room. Now I'm dying to paint it.
