Can i paint my dome oven???
 
I own a wood fire restaurant in Melbourne, Australia. I took over 9 months ago and am loving using the wood fire oven. The oven has several cracks and chips which i repaired today. i was going to paint the oven dome with white acrylic paint, but after thinking about it i am worried about some issues. Can anyone advice me about if i can use acrylic paint or not, if not how can i coat/color the dome.

I am worried the acrylic paint wont hold (should i paint the dome while hot or cold?), the paint will be toxic when the oven is hot giving of fumes, the paint will peel off,,,, i am confused and cant find any help in Melbourne. Any advice on technique or products will be greatly appreciated.

Happy cooking

Hi from Adelaide. I have painted my dome. In my experience it was not tricky at all. I bought good quality 'Solver' paint (Tuscan colour) and just applied two coats. I applied the paint direct to the final cement render coating. My dome is quite thick so heat has not been a problem with over 30 firings, in fact the exterior of the dome gets hotter on a 'hot day' than when the oven is fired. I can't recall if I used an acylic but I received very good advice from the paint experts at the retail outlet. You can see my completed oven in the "Completed Ovens" section.:)

Talk to your paint store about acrylic stucco paint.

This stuff is flexible, water resistant and comes in different colours.
