Does anybody have any suggestions as to what my options are with my brick fireplace. It was painted before I bought the house, and I would love to restore it, but have not had any luck. I have tried peel away, and I'm pretty convinced that I will never get it back to the way it should look. Is there a product that looks like brick, only thinner, that I could adhere to the surface. I'm kind of desperate.

IF you used PEEL AWAY it should have given you a bare surface. There are two PEEL AWAY products that can be used. PEEL AWAY I when the prime coat of paint (initial coat) was oil will removeall of the apint in a single application. If the first coat of paint was latex (water based) you need PEEL AWAY 7 to do the job. I suggest you call the Company and they can certainly help you

I removed white gloss paint from my fireplace but it took forever. I used a blow torch to blister the paint and then scraped it off. It looks great now, but if you get too close you can scorch the brick. I tried a paint stripper first which didn't work very well at all.
