And the hot glue would last through the oven phase without letting loose and dropping the part on the bottom of the oven?Parts you can't hang with a small piece of wire I typically hot-glue a 6" long bolt or any sort of handle-type "thing" to a part of the piece that isn't visible. Hot-glue comes right off when you want it to.
I'm no pro though, so someone might have a much better suggestion than that!
Good point. The oven-cure series would need wire most likely in some fashion. I haven't done small parts with the oven bake method though - just stuff I could hang in some way.I will wrap a small wire or paper clip around bolts to spray the exposed heads or through the pin holes and then I can just use that same wire to suspend them from a wire rack in the oven to cure. I will also poke the bolt etc through a piece of paper or masking tape to avoid over spray, I then flash it in the oven for 15 minutes or so to harden it just a tad and stop flowing before I remove the paper/tape. Too much longer though and the tape glues will leave gross glue remnants or the paint will cure to the paper leaving a gross edge once cured.
The best method will depend on the part.
