    I painted my mini early this morning. I wanted to make sure it had time to dry so I could put it to use this afternoon! [​IMG]

    I used the Rustoleum high heat paint. I wish the finish was a little shinier, to match the SJ, but I'm sure Joe will lose his shine over time. 

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice stencil and Great idea!!! Looks really good!!!

    Little late now but VHT makes a caliper paint that is very high gloss and withstands 600*.

    That looks awesome.   I'm leaning towards building a mini WSM.  I guess I need to think about paint at some point. 

    I'm guessing you just masked off the design and sprayed it?

    Thanks! I made a stencil out of the animals and then used that to cut out painters tape. The painters tape was laid out in slightly overlapping strips onto a piece of cardboard. Since the tape doesn't stick to the cardboard very well, it lifted off pretty easily in one piece. 

    I hope you'll post pictures of your build, there's a lot of love for the mini on this forum!
