Antique Oven Refinishing

I'am refinishing a antique gas stove (1920's). I have used a high temp flat black paint on the outer sheetmetal and am now tring to refinish the inside of the oven. I can't seem to find a product to do this with. The paint I used on the outside can withstand temps up to 1200 degrees F., but I don't like the color choices. Does anyone know of a product that can withstand the temps of an oven, can be applied at home and will give the speckled finish that most ovens seem to have?

Hello Rob Johnson and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliance forum.

I have not intentionally avoided replying to your question Rob but it may appear that way. Unless I am away on business or vacation, all questions are responed to daily.

Your question was left unanswered in the hopes others that read this forum may have an answer to your question. I do not have one. Nor was I able to determine which forum would have a moderator with the answer.

Unfortunately, to date I still do not have either a forum to move your topic to nor an answer. However, be advised that stove appliance manufacturers bake and cure the finishes applied to the interior of the ovens and use baked on porcelain on the internal parts.

Which means it is a process the do-it-yourself person is not equipped to duplicate.

Regards & Good Luck

Thanks for the reply. I'm coming to the same conclusion that Porcelain is the answer. Unfortunately, this process is very expensive at $100.00 per panel. With a total of nine panels that make up the oven, I was looking for a cheaper way.
