Scour previously painted and bare fiberglass or marble fireplace surrounds with sandpaper grain 220 to promote adhesion. Sand the envelope until it feels rough. Skip this step if the fireplace surround is bare metal, stone, concrete or wood.

Coat the fireplace surround with a latex acrylic primer, using a 7-10 cm (3-4 inches) brush intended for use with water based coatings. Apply a primer galvanized metal etching if the fireplace surround is made of metal. Wait four hours for the fireplace surround with primer to dry.

Wash the brush with water. Covers the fireplace surround priming a semi gloss or gloss acrylic latex paint. Apply the paint around the fireplace as it did the primer. Wait two hours for the ring painted fireplace to dry. Add another layer if you can still see the primer.
