I might want to try this on some small parts for my old truck  could you give us details on  how you did it and which paint you used?
 That base you did looks good to me.

Nice! Also interested in the process...that base looks smoother than a spray job.

In researching Japanne Lacquer paint I ran across a method where they would take a cast iron piece heat it quite hot and emurse it in a container of water with paint floating on top, the idea was to fill all of the pores in the iron with paint.  Did you use a similar method without the heat?

Hello sorry for the delay in response we were on vacation, I simply took the part sanded it with 200 grit sandpaper and cleaned it thouroughly with laquer thinner for prep. 5 gal bucket 3/4 full with water then added .5 gal of Rustoleum oil base enamel( was approx 2" deep) I had to let the paint and water sit about 20 min for a few water"bubbles" to settle. Then dipped it I pulled it out as slow a humanly possible to avoid any runs or pooling I don't know if it was necessary but it's what I did, used a string to dip and hang it, I haven't tried to duplicate this yet since we have been gone. I will say a "sterile" environment is ideal as the oil takes quite some time to dry hard, like a few days lol.

You could rig up a  little winch ( maybe a old  casting fishing reel ) with a  gear reduced electric motor . something like a timer motor out of a dryer etc. .
 Were you able to recover the left over paint?
 Put the lid on the 5 gal pail and store  paint and water?

That looks fantastic! Is there any concern about getting moisture under the paint film or between layers? Another concern using one really thick coat of Rustoleum will prevent it from fully hardening and it'll be soft for a long while, making reassembly a touchy process so you don't scratch it. 


Has it fully hardened yet? Maybe try placing it in a hot attic area. That works quite well with their epoxy paint.

There is a lot of information of the process on the internet. You can also search for "Hydro Painting".  One of the main advantages of the process is the water pressure forces paint into the surface as the object is being dipped, as far as reassembly using Rustoleum it's going to chip no matter how it's cured. They had some pretty wild examples of using spray paint on top of the water with lots of different colors, pretty wild results.
