Hello. Here’s a link that might offer some information. Hope this helps.
You don't need to use high heat paint. You do need to use a bonding primer. People paint their brick fireplace with regular paint...you can do the same.

I suggest you clean the tiles well, scuff with sandpaper, then use a primer, then paint.
RustOleum high heat paint would be my recommendation. However, I wouldn't think you would need them for a surround - only if you are painting the interior where the fire is. In general, I use fine steel wool to scuff the surface then clean with denatured alcohol, prime, and paint.
I agree with the last commenter. Rustoleum makes a great high heat paint that I've used in several application. As far as I know it only comes in black. But I also wonder if its necessary for a surround, I think an oil based paint and primer should do the trick.
If you're just painting the surround, you shouldn't need high heat paint. Be sure to clean the tiles well and use a good bonding primer before painting.
For your paint, the general rule for fireplace surrounds is an indoor, latex, and heat resistant paint. You can select either flat, semi-gloss or gloss, depending on what look you want your fireplace surround to have. For a fireplace, selecting paint with a little gloss isn’t a bad idea because it’s much easier to wipe down and clean.
You probably do not need high heat paint, just clean the tiles, rough them up with sandpaper, prime and paint.
here is more info for you Kelly
1) First off, you want to make sure that your tiles have been cleaned of any dirt or grease, so you need to scrub them thoroughly with soap and water. You can also lightly sand the tiles to help the paint adhere, but that really shouldn’t be necessary if you are using a special bonding primer.
2) Next, after carefully taping off the entire area around the tiles, you are ready to begin applying the first coat of primer and it is okay to use a paint that is not high heat resistent.
3) After waiting a full 24 hours to allow the primer to completely dry apply the first coat of latex paint.
There are paints for this purpose, but depending on your stones, they're might be good, better, best options. So I would consult the professionals at a paint store and ask which high heat paint would be appropriate for your ceramic tiles. They'll probably also recommend the best primer and maybe even a sealer.
YOu can use Rustoleum brand of paint for your fireplace tiles. Here's some info about that for you
Speak to your Paint Supply store, or Fireplace supplier as there is a special paint for this job!
Hi Kelly, you don't need heat-resistant paint to paint your surround, since the intense heat is concentrated around the fire and inside the fireplace. To paint ceramic tiles, use sandpaper or steel wool to roughen them up a little and give the paint something to grip onto. Here's a great video that gives a whole bunch of information about painting ceramic tiles - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjcYo_YA8Zo.
Hi Kelly: The secret to a good job is preparation. Before you do anything, prepare the surface as indicated on the can of paint. Here's a site that will tell you how to prepare the area and to paint it.
This suggests Rustolean Rock Solid paint: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqkmltKXYLU
You can probably get away with an adhesive primer (don’t bother trying to scuff tile, it’s impossible) and quality paints over it.
Thanks for all the great advice!!
I suggest to make use of Rustoleum high heat paint. Yet, I think there is no need for you to surround them.
It will be very important to start with a perfectly clean tile. Use TSP to achieve that.
