    Default Rayburn slow combustion stove restoration

    The paint on our stove has been affected by the heat and as my wife is getting a new kitchen she wants to make the stove look more presentable. What are my options to get the paintwork up to scratch - I don't want to take the stove out of the kitchen as it is quite old and would not cope with being pulled apart. Is there any paint that can be recommended that will deal with high temperatures.

    Black high temperature paint for pot belly stoves etc is readily available in from most large hardware or paint stores. Comes in a tin or aerosol and is commonly known as "pot belly black".

    Be warned that the paint WILL give off some fumes the first time the stove is lit after being painted. Nothing drastic but you'll need the windows open for half an hour or so and it may set the smoke detectors off if there's one nearby.

    If you want a colour other than black - check with a good paint shop.

    Thanks Smurf. I will have to try some paint shops in Brisbane or Sydney. I live in rural NSW and have had no joy at any of the local places.

    What colour are you looking for? Black or something else?

    You can get many clours of stove paint from a heating supply store - the guys that sell stoves and accessaries. We use gold paint on our Lopi.
