    Your wood burning stove look very close to the wall in your picture. It will be dangerous to paint your stone if you don't use the correct product. Here a link to a very informative article that tells you what to use. I hope it helps you.

    I have a faux rock fireplace that I hated - too much brown and orange tones. I made chalk paint (ivory) and then watered it down and painted it on to the rocks. It was super fast to do and I did more layers on the darker areas. I used to HATE our fireplace and want to tear it out and replace it. I now love it! It no longer dominates the room.

    I used special paint for stoves and heat areas. It comes in a liquid or spray paint. I used the spray paint. It took several layers, partly because it soaks in and also because I used several colors. I used grays, silver, charcoal and bronze, but more gray and silver. I started with pink brick, now I have a more appealing fireplace. With layering several colors of spray paint, you really can't go wrong because it's just artistic preference. I've also put the paint to the test and it has made it through a very cold winter, with lots of fires and still, everyone loves the look. My advice is, pick the heat paint, pick your colors, scrub and wash your area a couple days before you're going to paint, then use lots of ventilation and you decide what looks good by layering, kind of put your basic color everywhere and add what you think looks natural or whatever you like. That's it. You like it, you're done, if not spritz here and there, step back and decide if you want to do more. Have fun!
