We have a gas fireplace which is surrounded by faux-brick (I don't know what the brick is constructed from).
I would like to paint the surround and the mantle. The only problem is, the fireplace gets pretty hot and I'm wondering what kind of paint is safe to use? Obviously Tremclad high-heat is for metal, and the brick is most definitely not metal. And though I like the ease of cleaning up latex, I worry that it is not durable enough to stand up to the heat that blows out of the fireplace...is oil my option? Is it safe? Inquiring minds want to know!!!
