Painting Z-Brick in a Bathroom

Q. Years ago I put white Z-brick in the bathroom. Just above and around the tub and shower which is a one piece unit, I would like to paint it white to brighten the
z-brick up. I was just wondering if I could just use a flat white paint, I don't want it shiny or have a glossy look. Just wonder which paint would hold better to the brick due to the steam, I know the wall paint holds up to steam and water, I was not sure about the z-brick. Thank You for your time

A. Sorry, but I do not give any advice on homemade spray booths. A spray booth MUST meet the requirements of NFPA 33 because if you fail to follow all the recommendation there is a significant risk of explosion or fire. For a small fee you can download NFPA 33 from the National Fire Protection Association website.
