I read that once you powdercoat w/ it you aren't supposed to ever use it
for food again.

I also read you can do it w/ a toaster oven (if getting or storing a
full oven is a problem), but I doubt you'd find one big enough for a
frame. I think I read that agentQ PC'd his cranks several times w/ a
cheap toaster oven.




Yeah you deffinatly shouldnt use it for food after using it to cure
paint. Its really tough to get a toaster oven big enough to do frames
with.

wow that's nice! i want to powdercoat mine, and i was starting with
removing the paint. I had this paint remover that you just take on, and
used it several times, but still it just wont go off completely!

I kind of failed. I just let the paint remover for 1 hour or so and
then after several times ended up like this.. what to do?




Jeesh, never heard of sandpaper did you?

i can't imagine it matters w/ the temps needed for those kilns to
work...
and you are cooking the paint into the glaze, not the food, so i would
say its justifiable.

I guess not.

He should use both. Sand paper is pretty fast to remove the paint.
