Working with Lattice

I posted here under a different subject heading and got lots of support and good advice from other posters on an emotionally charged home improvement project. Unfortunately, it's advice I'm "forbidden" to use.
So-- Is lattice fire-proof? Would priming and painting it with semi-gloss, then using it as a "wall ornament" (a la That 70's Show) around and over an electric baseboard be dangerous?
Thanks!

Do not get the edge too close to the top of the heater. (High school chemistry/physics = heat rises!)
Install it during heating season so you can know the results before it's had 6 months to etch a faint pattern on the wall behind it.
Mount it as "portable" as possible with a couple of "temporary" screws, in case you need to scooch it up a bet, to get it farther away from the heater.
Stay in the same room with it, watch it *intensely* for the first 6 - 8 hours it is up with the heater running. If it doesn't char in that time, you can ease up a bit, check it every hour or two, taper off over the next day or two.
After you've observed it for a couple of weeks looking for signs of discoloration from heat, and you are satisfied that it is safe, make the mounting more secure.

By all means, let common sense prevail. Have you heard of wood paneling? Wainscoating? You think they're "fireproof". Do you believe they're not used in rooms with baseboard heat?! Put the damn lattice in and worry about something important. It ain't brain surgery, and it doesn't require "hours and weeks" of watching. Jeeez!

The around part isnt that bad the over part should be eliminated. lattice scraps make a excellent fire,
