metal question about fireplace.. pic Help Plz
I am trying to do a frame, like a picture frame, around my gas firebox.
The manufacturer hasn't been able to help, the custom maker for the local fireplace store doesn't want to take it on and I am at my wits end.
I want brass and or steel that I can color to gold or brass.
I could guild steel with gold leaf but am worried the gold will melt and what about the sizing (glue) that holds the gold leaf on?
I was told that galvanized metal off gasses in the heat.
The metal does get pretty hot around the outside of the firebox.
I found brass metal picture frame but the configuration makes it hard to fit to fire box.
Anybody have any ideas on how where to do this?
