I've been wanting to do this paint job to my gun for some time now, but kept putting it off.
Now, with the return of duck season and wet weather, I remember that the main reason I wanted to do it (other than the fact that it looks great) was because every time I take my gun out in the rain, I end up with new spots of rust/pitting. It is an inexpensive gun but I would really like to protect it!!
So my problem is this: I know that you are supposed to do this in warm, DRY weather, but that probably won't be happening around here for another 6 or 7 months! The humidity generally hangs in the 80's throughout winter and spring.
Is there a way I can still do this ASAP? Heat lamps, fans, anything?!
I really don't want to wait that long to get this done, but I don't want the thing to just flake off either. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I wasn't able to do the reeds though, but I like how it looks like this.
