painting a woodstove


I recently bought a house. it has a wood stove insert in it. it is in good condition. it is just a little dirty and some minor rust on it.

what should i use to clean off the stove? what is the best paint out there? i would like to have a little shine to the stove. what is the general process to painting. i am planing on brush painting or roll painting which is better? any help will be great






thanks

mineral spirits to clean rust,

Try some stove black.. cheap & rag on... It will look great.. flat finish but uniform.

If you go the paint route, lots of prep, prime, & very high temp paint.

There are specific paints for stoves. Most (that I've seen) are flat, not glossy. You can also use stove polish (what the previous painter called stove black), which is a paste that you rub on, buff off. However, if you use that stuff, you can't paint later on. It's much easier than prepping for paint though.

I've reconditioned many wood stoves, including antiques
The best process seems to be to remove the rust, by wire brush, sanding, and grinding if needed
Then a proper cleaning with the solvent or cleaner recommended by the paint company (I use "Pre", but I'm not sure how available that is)
Then paint

I'd recommend going to the wood stove store to get the proper type paint, although I have occasionally found it in good quality hardware stores (the stuff at the big boxes is generally garbage)
I'll check to see if I've got some around, to tell you the name
But regardless, if the stove store doesn't sell it, they probably sell something comparable
It's a spray can, which is the best way to apply this sort of stuff
It's flat, and there's not really a lot of other options
Engine paints simply do not hold up the the heat the way they are needed to for a stove

I've also used stove black, that works too...but it can rub off if rubbed against (kids, dogs, guests)
IMO the paint is a better all-around way to go

If I Do Get The Paint From Home Depot It Will Be Aa High Temp Paint. But I Want To Paint It On By Brush Or Roller. Which Is The Best Way To Paint Stoves. I Am Thinking Roller Just Because Of The Brush Strokes. I Think The Paint Is By Rustoleum. Thanks

The Rustoleum high-temp paint, as most high temp paints, are not flame resistant and should not be used on a stove
Not to mention many are not hi-temp enough for a wood stove

Rustoleum Stove Black is not too bad
I've used it before
This product is considerably better if you can find it
