So I just purchased a vintage egg from a deceased neighbor who bought it more than 20 years ago according to his son. It need somme love so I ordered new gaskes, new bands, a new vent cover, and now I need to paint it. How, what, do I use to paint it??? What about Rustoleom High Temp paint?? Any ideas??

    probably be fine. you may want to ask around about max temp on that egg, some of the older ones were made of a different material and only are good up to about maybe 400. im not sure when they changed to the newer ceramics that take the high heats.

    Only thing I would suggest is using high temperature engine paint.

    I have just painted an egg that is over 20 years old.

    Actually, it is the second time that it's been painted.

    I did use the high temp grill paint and have had no

    problems. This is a clay egg which is fine with the

    Rustoleum grill paint. Go for it..
