Does anyone even know whether it would even heat it?

Microwaves wavelengths are designed to excite water molecules. If molecules of paint or clear are a different size, it might not work at all.

One thing that I haven't seen in this post is, what is the flash point of the material being used?? That is a big factor!! I would not use a microwave period for warming any paint supplies. Hot bucket of water is what I have done in the past.

Not sure why we need them, but here are some and most common with this type of stuff.
Flash Point (Method Used): 76F (TCC) Flammable Limits: LEL 1.7 UEL 7.6 .

This is dangerous to have the fumes in the house let alone be cooking the stuff. This should not even be discussed before someone gets hurt.

There are a 100 things that can go wrong, fumes and the fridge kicks on?
How dry is your house? Do you have a static electricity problem? Most houses do in the winter.
This needs to die.

The professionals that frequent this forum have suggested that this thread be dumped.

Attempting to heat any liquid that is combustible is not a good idea, especially near a flame or, God forbid, in a microwave. Our resident pros have voiced their opinions against such a dangerous practice and as one of the Mods, I will leave it at that.

This thread is being closed rather than dumped so that if anyone IS actually thinking about doing such a "stupid" thing they can see what true professionals think of the idea.
