Is it possible to run 2 oven elements (under 3kw total output) on the one 13amp plug??

I want to create a powder coating oven made from a small metal office cabinet, however every double oven i can find is rated way above the 3kw max rated for a 13amp supply, therefore i wanted to see if i could use one 1500w element, and then buy another and just simply attach it to the existing wiring, or am i being silly?? I havent tried it but i doubt just 1 element will be able to keep the heat at 200°c in a large space.

Or if anyone else knows of a way to get around this then please post below!
