Modelmakers (and anyone else who spraypaints small parts) know that aerosol spray goes dull when there is moisture in the air – for instance, when it’s raining. To make a perfect drying cabinet, use a discarded microwave oven, remove the transformer and install a 60 W or 100 W incandescent bulb inside. You then have a timer, on/off switch and turntable for fast and even drying.
