Keeping this in view, what kind of paint do you use on brass?

Most of the paints available that are suitable for brass come in a spray form. However, any acrylic enamel paint should do the trick, regardless of whether it's a spray paint or a brush-on paint.

One may also ask, do you need heat resistant paint for a fireplace? Painting a fireplace requires specialist heat resistant paint to create a safe and long-lasting professional finish. Materials such as brick and stone will withstand heat but will still require a heat resistant paint system.

Secondly, can you paint a metal fireplace insert?

Apply a light coat of galvanized metal-etching primer to the metal fireplace, using a 3- to 4-inch latex paintbrush. Apply only a light coat. Do not over-apply as this may lead to runs and brushstrokes in the final finish. Allow the primer to dry and cure for four hours.

How do you clean a brass fireplace surround?

Dip half a lemon into ordinary table salt and rub directly onto the area that needs cleaning. Alternatively, mix lemon juice and salt into a paste and rub onto the area with a cloth. For both options, the area will need to be wiped over with a damp cloth followed by a clean dry cloth to buff the shine up.
