Before we get started:
  • If you have a decorative fireplace door or stove with a custom finish, we highly recommend consulting the owner's manual for your application to determine the appropriate steps to take in order to touch up the flaw in question.
 
Make sure you have the following supplies on hand:
  • Rubber gloves
  • Protective eye-wear
  • Drop cloth to protect your furnishings
  • Paint scraper
  • Wire brush
  • Degreaser or dish soap
  • Cloth rags
  • Fine-grit sandpaper or scotch-brite pad
  • Stove Bright high temperature paint color of your choice

IMPORTANT: You may want to test the Stove Bright on a small surface area first. If the existing paint bubbles or lifts, you are going to need to remove the finish entirely before applying Stove Bright. If your door or application has been painted with Stove Bright in the past, you'll just need to scuff the surface, wipe it clean, and you're ready for a new application!

  1. Prepare the area that needs to be repainted by scuffing the previously painted surface with a scotch-brite pad or fine-grit sandpaper. The goal is to simply roughen up the surface – you don't want to remove the paint entirely.
  2. Wipe the area with a clean cloth. You can also spray the rag with paint prep (found at your local hardware store) to help remove any remaining debris and paint dust. The cleaner your substrate surface is, the better it will accept the new paint.
  3. Shake the can (regardless if you are using aerosol or brush on paint) for 2 minutes to ensure the pigment is well mixed. If you are using the aerosol paint, spray some paint onto a piece of cardboard to ensure a clear flow of the product to the nozzle.
  4. Two to three light coats are recommended to achieve the best finish.
    • If you are brushing on the paint, apply a thin coat with a soft bristled paintbrush.
    • If you are spraying on the paint, hold the can 12 to 15 inches away from the surface and apply a light mist coat, using a back and forth (horizontal) motion to resemble dotting on the surface.
  5. Allow the first coat of paint to dry for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Apply your second layer in the same manner as in Step 4.
  7. Allow the second coat to set for 15-20 minutes.  
  8. Inspect the surface. If there are any remnants of the previous paint job that are showing through, or if the surface appears to have uneven coverage, you'll need to apply a third light coat. If the product was laid evenly and the finish is to your satisfaction, you can skip Step 9.
  9. Apply a third light coat in the same manner as in Step 4.
  10. Let the paint self-cure for a minimum of 2 hours (4 hours is recommended) before exposing the paint to any kind of heat. The final setting of this paint is formulated to be heat cured, although it will “air cure” in 48 hours.
