Smoke from struck Tweenie

Then I took it home. I pulled the electronics from the shell and painted the body with Mole Richardson Maroon Spraypaint. I painted over the whole thing with a few layers. I let it dry for a couple of days.
Then I struck it again. After 15-20 minutes, it started smoking. From a cold start, it takes about this long to strike. I've tried twice.
Any ideas what the smoke is and where's it's coming from? All I can tell is that it's from inside the light, and nothing in particular looks like it's causing it. It's just a little dirty inside.

If you just recently painted it, it's definitely the paint baking. Just let it run for a few hours outside until it stops smoking. Keep a fire extinguisher close just in case something goes totally wrong.
Thanks guys! Guess that's what it was.
