There are many paints stove pipes, which are resistant to heat (150 or 200 Â°) but does not resist the flame of a log that rolled (minimum 700 Â°). I recommend instead of scraping the stones to remove a small layer. You can use a wire brush or hand mounted on a drill.. This will probably prettier as a result, and you can do it again in a few years. While the loose paint. hmm.. frmu as said, it's not terrible as rendered :-)

can I have a suggestion? Why Turn the backlight repainted with whitewash wisely metered and stained to locate the original color? Try in an inconspicuous area or on a stone in rab. No worries for heat and effect "nature" found

careful not to overload to avoid patching the contours of your stones and give them an appearance as well smoothed This would be detrimental to the overall aesthetics of your fireplace. Good job !
