Exclamation spray painting metal parts (amp chassis and stuff)

I found a good, fast and simply way for spray painting with aerosol cans. The biggest trouble is dust settling on the wet paint, bitching up the whole work. Avoiding that is done this way:

Put the part to be painted in your baking oven, heat it up to some 75 - 100°C, get it out and spray it immediately from around 30 cm distance. You will see the paint drying in a twinkling! No time for dust to settle on it. Put it back in the oven, bake it for 30 minutes or so and you´re done. The paint gets much harder than drying in the normal way. I´ve done this many times with acrylic spray paint and the results aren´t distinguishable from professional work.

Hope you find this helpful.
