For best results sandblast all surfaces that will be painted, the blast cabinet at TechShop SoMa uses garnet as an abrasive.

If you are using something made of steel clean it with water and sodium phosphate, if aluminum use simple green, then rinse.

Completely dry item in oven while it is coming up to temperature, but sure not to touch the piece with your bare hands.
