    some automotive paint shops would be able to bake it for you... or if you have an old oven you don't use for cooking anymore, then you can bake it in that.

    Same idea when they blue them at the factory. It helps it stick better and not chip and stuff. :dunno:

    The main point is to help it stick better and the cure quicker. Paint that is baked is usually fully cured in 24 hours. This is more important to automotive type finishes though.

    Some paints also have to be heated up before they start to cure to the surface (OEM automotive finishes, powdercoating)
