DIY FAQ

Ok, so I've seen a couple of threads with the same shit on them, so maybe it'd be a good idea to get a FAQ going. And maybe, it can be stickied?

Anyways, questions include:

What paint should I use?
Should I bake the paint?
What gauge wire should I use?

Paint I can't help you with (although yes, I beleive the preffered method is too bake it but not in your normal oven! Those fumes aren't good) but...

Gauge of wire... can't really help as there is a difference between English and American Gauges but between stranded and solid core wire really what you feel comfortable with, sometimes I find stranded core wire to be a bit more hassle as you have to tin the ends, but sometimes Solid core is a little brittle at times and while it can help to suspend a circuit where you want it, it can also push it a place you don't want it.

I know this is just more in general.
