Can I Paint Brass Wood Stove Door?
Our wood stove door is made of brass (at least that's what it looks like). I'm trying to eliminate all of the brass finish in our home and would like to change the stove door color to satin nickel. I was planning to sand the door to rough it up, primer with engine primer and then spray with high heat paint. I don't know if engine paint comes in satin nickel but if not, I figured some kind of silver or stainless color might work.
The wood stove shop in town told me that paint won't stick to brass. Is that true? I don't want to paint if it's going to peel. Any advice would be appreciated. If it's ok to paint, should I use 100 grit or fine grit sandpaper before priming? Would I also need to sand after priming and between paint coats?
