What kind of dried paint? What is under the paint on the ceiling? ....on the metal?
If you are considering buying a cabinet for keeping paint in, the material the cabinet is made from should be flame-resistant. The cabinet should also shelter the paint cans from heat sources, the sun, and small children and pets.
Many different types of cabinet door hardware may be used on the metal door of a cabinet. The Knobbery offers a wide selection of cabinet knobs, such as brass knobs and copper knobs (both of which are perfect for metal cabinet doors)
This depends on the brand of metal you buy and the kind of paint that is on the metal. A common warranty on a good paint scheme is usually somewhere around 20 years.
Use a 100% acrylic latex paint over a pre-primed door. If it is bare metal, use a 100% acrylic primer first.
High Temperature paint, which you could find in just about every hardware store.
I would not think it practical to paint flatware (metal eating utensils), but if possible I would think it would require epoxy paint.
If you are painting a metal fence, electrostatic painting is the way to go. If you are doing it yourself, use an acrylic latex paint. It will hold up to the sun and will last longer and is appropriate for wood, vinyl and metal. Brushing and rolling will get the most paint on the fence, avoiding overspray. If you are hiring a professional to paint a metal fence, then electrostatic painting used correctly will produce the least amount of overspray.
Any quality exterior paint. Do prime first however. Rustoleum makes a high visibility spray paint that might also be of interest to you. It can be purchased in the paint department of most Home Depots.
Sterling Silver is a metal, therefore you can apply paint. Silver Jewerly is usually polished, and you must give the paint some tooth to grab hold of, (rough the area with fine sandpaper, 400 or 500 grit) also consider a metal primer, depending on the kind of paint you use. (I recommend a quality enamel paint)
what kind of paint does O'Keeffe use
Most oil based paints can withstand the heat subjected to a metal range hood. Ensure that the surface is clean and deglossed, then prime any bare spots prior to applying two coats of oil based paint. (previous answer) rust-oleum, sold in home depot and lowes, is a paint that can be used to paint metals.
