Hey guys, I know it's an old thread, just wanted to know if the white, or whatever colour your painting the embossed part, does that paint also need to be heat resistant? Or can you just use epoxy enamel?
Just looking to do this in the next couple of days and couldn't find the answer to this anywhere.
Thanks
