These are Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and Toyota vehicle powder paints. I really like the floresent pearl green from Dodge. I am about to figure this powder painting with an air brush out. Spraying does a pretty good job. It doesn't goo up the hook eyelet..

Let me know what u think of these jigs, pro or con.........

I think they are about 1/8 ounce. This is a homemade mold. Made by my machinist friend from a jig mold blank. We are gonna make some more molds sooner or later. I should he is...ha..
If you look real close at the pics, you will see the eyes of the minnow head are raised. Not a purchased mold. He and I just like messing with this stuff. I am lucky to have such a friend. He is also a preacher. He prays for me everyday.
I guess he thinks I need it...haha

I remember that you've been tinkering with the paint for a while and I believe you've got it down to an art! Those look great!

Been looking at the red fishin line, I use yellow at present because I can see it. If red disapears under water how do fish see red jigs and tubes? Just thinkin or am I thinkin to much?

If you want the RIGHT paint, buy Poly Sil from Poor Boys in LaGrange, IN. This stuff does not chip. You can dent the lead head and the pain is still there. Paint it on by hand or air brush. poorboybaits.com or lurecraft.com

Tell Kim and Shawn Cary sent ya. You will Love it!!!!!:cool:

Red doesn't "disappear" ... it's just one of the first colors to not reflect light back, when the light source diminishes. Basically, it stops being red ... and starts being black. Black reflects no light - it absorbs it. Therefore, black line/bait in the darkness of deep water or under low light conditions, will not be as visable as other colors.
Fish can see color/shape a lot better underwater than we can ... their eyes are designed for it. They can also see better in cold water, than in very warm water. Even though red line or jigs are perceived as black in a dark environment, or against a dark background ... they are not "invisible". And neither are they silent !! They don't even have to "hit" anything to be noticable to the fish ... the mere movement of the bait thru the water, creates pressure waves, which can be detected by the fish.
That's my understanding of it, anyway. ........ luck2ya .....cp

Cane pole I will pass on a tip to ya, I see in the 3rd pic that you are using a wire to let the jigs dry. Go and get yourself at lowes the chain that is used on ceiling fans. It works real good for keeping the jigs spaced apart even when you have alot of weight on it. I have something simulair like yours but with 1x3 boards in a long U shape then stapled the chain to the board and pulled it real tight. Mine is about 5" tall just enough so I can dip and move to the next jig with ease.

Tom, the jigs look great:D I'm just too lazy to use a spray gun, too much clean up. What TA 73 said also sounds like a good idea.

I just picked up a toaster oven at a yard sale. The toaster has temp and time controls. I gonna make a metal rack to fit the toaster and use chains like u suggested. I am new at this painting stuff, so any hints are greatly appreciated.

I ain't tried 'em out yet. Most powder paint is tough. This stuff I am using is used on sprint cars. The cars get "sand blasted" in a race, and come out looking new. No paint peel like enamel or arcylic.
