    Tile paints are usually epoxy-based.

    Preparation & proper binding primer are keys to it lasting.

    I would go to a full/line pro paint store unless you know someone at a DIY store in the paint Dept with 10 years of experience.

    Paint around a firebox will char or burn and that’s technically a fire hazard as nothing within 18” of the firebox is supposed to be flammable.

    They have special tile paint at home depot. It is a 2 part paint and smells real bad but it works really well.
