    Default How to paint a porcelain wood stove

    Just found a great deal on a Hearthstone Heritage soapstone wood stove. The only bad thing about it is that the trim is 1990's blue porcelain. Is there a high temperature paint to repaint over porcelain?

    I looked on the Hearthstone site and the Heritage is enamel. http://www.hearthstonestoves.com/woo...s?product_id=3 If that is the case on your stove, Hi-temp enamel will color the stove. I don't know about heat darkening or longevity. It might be a live with it situation or a hope for the best thing.

    Going to take a look at that stuff Bob. Looks like it might work if this is a porcelain stove. I am going to contact Hearthstone next week and find out if the 1990's models were porcelain. Yea Ga_boater, the new ones are enamel. This one I am looking at sure looks like porcelain......I hope it is enamel, sure would make painting easier. Thanks for looking that up.

    Hey Cofe, a good enamel job should look like porcelain. I think you have a good chance it is enamel. Porcelain is kinda fragile, but hopefully Hearthstone will/can help you out.

    If it is porclen enamal can't be painted easily as paint doesn't stick to glass.
