honestly unless you wanted super exact match on color and texture there is no reason to powdercoat a vase. i could see it holding on sandblasted glass but i think its a lot more work that it would be to just color the glass in production
you know now that i think about it my friend was talking about this, idk if he figured out if coals in the tray would be an issue or not or if it was something he still needed to look into. i honestly would want to see the MSDS or other official info from them about any fumes that are released from it. i also think a coal directly on it might cause an issue but kinda think just heat wont be an issue. i would no assume anything though
as to color black or something random and cool, the minis are cheap so if you dont like it you can spend another 25 and get one to mess around with again
