powder coat problem

Hey folks, I have been powder coating some stuff for a bike project and have been having a problem curing it. At least I think its a curing problem. Jusy not getting the slick finish I want. Stuff comes out with orange peel. Parts are clean and I'm getting enough powder on them. the problem seems worse with large flat areas. Did some heavy round foot pegs that came out great. It seems like the flat areas just don't flow out well. I'm fairly new at this. More heat, less heat, or heat longer. If it was a paint problem I'd know exactly what to do but this stuff is new to me. Using a small toaster oven and a cheap HF coater. Suggestions would sure be appreciated. thanks
