    although I think the color of the fabric could effect the paint coloration...correct?


    ...other than that.... plenty of lighting...

    Color is only as good as the light that hits it. I don't know how many watts of lighting you could get away with in that tent before it becomes a fireball but heat helps speed curing which might be handy outdoors. less of a chance for stuff to get into the finish.

    2 things influence paint drying, airflow & temperature... the best way to devise a makeshift booth is to filter ALL of the incoming air, & use a fan to exhaust, thereby pulling clean filtered air in....

    We used to paint tractors for the pulls in our barn. The "paint booth" was a stall that we lined with old bed sheets. This kept out the dust and bugs, but still allowed ventilation. Then we used a couple box fans at the back to suck air out. The walls were the filters. Worked pretty good.
    Failure is not an option....
