Not a novel thread but I am starting a new one because most that I have read seem to indicate no issues with Rustoleum Specialty Metallic in a copper metallic color. It was beautiful when I painted it in June after sandblasting. Come winter it temporarily gave off odor with the first heating cycles as expected, but, what was not expected was the slow continuous color change with each cycle. By January of the first winter it had changed from a brilliant copper color to a muddy brown/gold dingy color. Paint says it is good to 200F. could it have been because I did not use a primer?
I am now contemplating painting another radiator gold using a VHT engine metallic which I intuitively would have more confidence in from a temperature stability standpoint but the color selection is limited. The gold is "very gold". I have plenty of standing radiation for the room to spare so I would prefer to stay with a metallic looking finish. Also would prefer spray because I believe it goes on much smoother and easier particularly in the interior than brushed on. Any recommendations out there of a suitable metallic gold paint with more of an antique look than the in your face engine paint gold?
