I love the look of this. With the heat, is there anything to worry about with the clear coat? What do you use?

Phoenix Handcraft
There are a couple of high-heat clear coats on the market. Sculpt Nouvea makes one we use frequently. Another alternative is religiously applying a paste wax- about once a month. This creates a beautiful finish and is one of our favorites to use for interior ironwork. Check out our website for multiple examples.

It looks like cold rolled steel to me. Hot rolled steel has mill scale on it, thus the darker color. Cold rolled tends to be smoother and a light grey like this. This also has been lightly buffed and clear coated. High heat clear coats ...sculpt nouveau. Or Paste was 1per month.
