Default Re: Paint for Bucktail Heads?

Powder painting is THE way to go... I heat mine in a toaster oven, then dip into containers with powder paint.. be sure to stir the powder often, because it tends to pack down, after a few dozen jigs, it may be necessary to sift hardened bits of powder paint out of the mixture.... for extra durability, you can brush Devcon 1 hour epoxy onto the jig jead ... be sure to flip it end over end until the epoxy sets up... use the 1 hour, not the 5 minute, as the 5 minute yellows much faster...
