When things go bad

Look! see the red/gray car? I was going to try and make it look good.

This is after sanding, so far so good.

Gawd! I didnt know I was so good. its nice and it has the primer on.
OH NO!! I left it under the light a little bit to long.

Close up of the tragedy.

And a picture of the HEAT monster.

Bad luck, man! Sometimes we learn valuable lessons the hard way I'm sure you will not make the same mistake again.

If you want to properly dry paint invest in a food dehydrator. Make sure to get one with a temp control. I leave mine set around 105 degrees F.

Re: When things go bad

Like someone else said, make a crash scene, the patterns where it distorted look like there could be a long pole sticking down in there, or something..

Re: Re: When things go bad

well. I'm not trying to be rude, but when you have a lamp, like that, shit will happen! those generate a load of heat. Personally, to speed it up, use either a food dehydrator, or a regular 75watt bulb 8-12'' away works just fine for me. I hope you can do something with the destroyed pieces.
