Ok so I went and bought some powder coat to "attempt" to paint up some spinners. I've been messing with the stuff and it's pretty dang cool and it is very very durable. I need to go to Home Depot or something and get some good heat resistant tape. My only question is how the heck do you get a thin even coat? first I tried heating the blades, that didn't work they cool off too fast. So I took two cookie sheets, lined them with alluminum foil, took the racks out of my toaster oven. I take the blades set them on on one of the racks, then grab the heat gun and heat them a little bit and then I take the paint which I've put in a salt shaker and try to sprinkle it on evenly. The salt and pepper shaker helps a lot but there's gotta be an easier way to apply the powder coat.
