    This is a great write up. Very well done. There are two things I would add:

    1. prismaticpowders.com has great powder. Its very easy to work with, very forgiving, very inexpensive, and there are tons of colors to choose from.

    2. If anyone is doing this as a hobby, check out some of the pc forums throughout the web. I suggest powder365.com/forum, caswellplating.com, and the eastwood forum(not as good as the other two). These forums are great to for building ovens and blast cabinets.

    Hope this helps !!!

    Two coats of translucent copper powdercoat on top of chrome and finished with two coats of ultra-gloss clear. Took total of an hour and a half including baking time. Actual work time: 15 minutes. The longest/hardest part about this was cleaning the PC gun which is really just being whiney. I use my shopvac to pick up any stray powder from the gun and then use compressed air to blow off anything that remains.

    This really is stupid easy.
