    Dust in Enamel paint

    Hi guys! I'm currently in a pickle here. I'm painting some parts orange-yellow with enamels, but dust has settled on them while they were drying (small clumps). Anyone know how to get rid of them? Should I strip the piece? Thanks!

    Have you tried sanding the surface lightly with 2000 grit? May have to wait a day or two for the paint to dry enough for it. If that doesn't work, it may be best to just strip the piece.

    Thanks. I'll try that. I had no luck with the 3000, so I'll go down to 2000.

    I feel for your struggle with dust. I have to live with it since I don't have a dedicated booth and the garage isn't exactly a clean area. It's easier to avoid when using the AB, but handpainting? Let's just say the process becomes rather stressful.
