Not sure about 'stain' but the product I mentioned earlier, i.e. the sealer in choice of matt, gloss, etc can be painted over with a regular paint. With regard to heat from a chimney - sorry, don't know.

I've just painted my brick garden wall, using a quality masonary paint. Several of the bricks have refused to be painted, the stuff just ran off. I've tried drilling the bricks, thinking it maybe poor drainage.Nothing has w orked and those few bricks remain naked, while the majority are brilliant white....Any ideas anyone?
