high heat vs reg


I just painted an old brass wood burning glass fireplace door with rustoleum flat black paint... and as soon as I jinished I thought of high heat...

think it will be good or will it give off fumes?

I can either give it a coat of high heat over top of the regular paint, or I can find a hammer...

Those doors don't get that hot---Give it a try and see how the paint holds up---I think you will be fine.

I would not worry unless you have to either. However, if you find yourself in a fail situation, putting something like a barbecue or engine paint over the top is not going to get you very far. You cannot use paint to seal problems. You will have to strip what is on and falling off. Sounds like if you were thinking of a hammer you are not wild about the thing in the first place? Maybe it is time for something you like better before sinking lots of money and time into this.

Actually I do like the regency ci1250 more but can't afford it this year
So I picked up glass doors for $20
I will make the opening fit both so switching over is easy..
I'll leave it for now since removing doors and redoing isn't more than a days work
