Powder paint on spoons

Recommended Posts

Does anybody else use powder paint to make spoons? I'm curious of your setups and your production techniques . The heat gun and single spoon at a time is time consuming.

I have not had time to try it, but i acquired a toaster oven for my backing.

We used to. It is tough having to heat each spoon, one at a time with a heat gun. We then used a powder paint airbrush, the paint holds up great after baking, but it is time consuming.

 

Now we just use acrylic paint and still bake to cure. Then we use a spray clear coat over top. The powder paint is definitely more durable, but the acrylic is much easier to use and paint cleaner lines/patterns etc.

How are the acrylic glows? Do they hold up? I'm not mass producing so I'm not really worried about them lasting a life time, but at the same time.... If it takes me 20-30 minutes to perfect a spoon... It better last me a season

I can tell you it's an art and I'm no artist. It does take time but the finish is thick and should last very well

I got a microwave/ convection oven at a yard sale. The microwave part took a dump so I got the unit for $15.00 you can fit 20+ spoons in there. We then bake the airbrush spoons after they dry also. Some we powder coat, then add the finishing touches to the spoon, clear coat is a must if you want them to last. I'm far from a artist but my daughter is amazing with a airbrush!! So I do the powdering and she does the fine tuning. LOL
