How do I paint and seal my outdoors fire pit?
Hi you all, I have been painting my outdoor fire pit with a high heat specialty paint (up to 2000° F) for the last three years following all manufacturer directions, only to have it peal and flake off, about the third fire in. I cleaned it, brushed it, used a grinder to make sure there was nothing left, wiped it clean with mineral spirits, let it completely dry, made sure that the weather condition were favorable, i.e. low humidity, and painted it with paint that is made specifically for it! Uhhh... It is rusting again and I would like to prevent it from deteriorating further. Has anyone ever had this problem happen to them? what works?
