    I did this technique following your instructions exactly and it came out perfectly! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Does the Heirloom Paint hold up well when you use your fireplace. Read that as long as the fire doesn’t touch it, it’s fine. Just worried about the little vent holes around the two sides of the insert. Thank you!

    1. Hi Dorothy! That’s a great question. It may be okay and I love Heirloom Tradition Paint but I choose to go with a heat resistant paint instead when I did my fireplace surround to make sure that it would be safe and hold up. I used that paint but applied it with the same method I used with HTP and it applied really well. I would recommend using this paint on the fireplace trim/surround just to be safe. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions! 🙂

  3. I have a question… if I was going to do this in steps (after work at night) could I do the deglossing step and then wait and day or two and then move on to the painting part? I just wanted to check in case there was an issue with leaving the residue from deglosser on or waiting too long of a period before painting over it? Thank you for your help and your post! I have all of my supplies ready due to your post bc like you I have recently had bricks painted and also my walls so I do NOT want any spray paint anywhere!

    1. Hi! I’m so excited for you! Deglossing is pretty quick so I’d recommend doing it and then getting a coat on in the same day if you can for best results. If thats not an option though, I’d at least finish deglossing and not leave it on for days. I don’t know what the deglosser would do if it was left on for days. Best of luck!
