    No, The paint will burn off. Fumes may be harmful.

    no i would not paint anything that goes into fireplace. Red lava rocks will get dusty anyway and turn black after first fire

    You're better off getting/purchasing black lava rocks. They retain heat very well.

    You can use heat resistant paint. They use it on grills all the time. I got mine at Lowe’s.
