you can do multiple colors of powder coat, but you have to do 1 color at a time and use glass tape to mask off coated areas since it has to go through the oven at 400 for 10 min. we don't do it for customers where I work because of the time involved. but I get to do all my rod parts for free. you can do small parts in an oven in your garage, sears sells a system for 160 bucks an powder is 2.00 a pound, 1 pound covers 30 sq.ft.
