What kind of paint do you use on a stove?
Also to know is, can you paint your stove?
You can paint your kitchen stove instead of buying a new one. When you repaint the stove, however, you cannot use just any kind of paint. The paint you need is specifically for appliances and comes under many different brand names. This type of paint has an epoxy base and dries to a much harder finish.
Similarly, can you paint a stove to look like stainless steel? Kitchen ranges require special high-temperature stainless steel paint, so if your stove is part of your plan, it's best to paint all your appliances with Liquid Stainless Steel, which is designed for this kind of application. (Keep in mind that glass-top stoves can't be painted on the cooking surface.)
Then, how do you paint a stove?
Start at the top and apply the heat resistant paint to the flue. Brush down from the top edge to the top of the stove. Do not over apply the paint. A thin coat is all that is required and too heavy a coat can lead to peeling of the paint.
Can you paint a stove white?
If you're spraying on appliance paint, you'll want to apply light, consistent coats. Typically, you'll need 3 or 4 coats to ensure the items are completely covered. You can use paint to make a brown stove white or you can really have fun and inject some life into the most important items in your kitchen.
