  My dad has a powder paint line, so I have access to powder paint. I could
get powder paint inexpensively if anyone wants some.  The trick is to apply
the paint uniformly.  The best way is to use an electrostatic powder paint
gun.  I don't know how you could get the paint on evenly without
electrostatic.  It is also important to apply the paint to a clean surface
and to cure it correctly.  Different types of powder paint take different
temperatures/times for a proper cure.  Cure temps are somewhere around 350f.
When cured correctly, it can be hit with a hammer without flaking off. BTDT.
