Vase too tall for oven
I have a large vase that I painted and need to cure (have no pic). I realized that the vase is too tall for the oven. Can I lay it down? will the paint be ruined if I lay it down? (Note: I painted the vase almost 30 days ago). I've read that if left to air dry for 21 days it is cured and no need to cure in the oven. I would like to cure in the oven to be certain since it will be a gift to someone special and I don't want her to wash the vase and the paint to wash off.
Vase paint detail: I stenciled a leaf design along the top edge of the vase in a dark red with gold specks. and painted 4 1/2 inches from the bottom in a solid red.
