Dipping Pieces in Paint

Post by alphacharlie » Wed Jan 05, 2022 5:46 pm

Have smaller pieces I would like to be able to dip in paint for coverage and speed. Have tried it with varied success. What are some tips and tricks to make this work successfully? Type of paint that works best also? I was using a direct to metal, biggest problem we had was the dry time and some spots would be thinner than others. Thanks for the help.

You could try dipping in powder paint (powder coating) and then put in oven or use heat gun to rapidly cure. There was a recent post by Tom with some videos showing how to do this.
