    try swirling the heads in the powder instead of just dipping them in the paint.

    Exactly if using fluid bed. Like I stated I swirl mine one or a few times depending on color. If just dipping in jar container then just a quick dip. You have to figure with a fluid bed, air is introduced therefor the paint isn’t as dense.

    No matter what I always add some clear to any powder paint, some colors are just really thick! Brown, black and purple have always been the worst for me.

    With a fluid bed you also may not be getting enough air to roil the powder.

    I tried some the other day without the fluid beds and thought they looked good until I baked them. Even though I followed the directions on the powder paint I’m pretty sure it was to hot.... it melted the glitter. Some colors still had the dimples. So from that test I eliminated the fluid bed as culprit. Next test I will clean jigs first and probably add a teaspoon of clear to the colors and see what results I get from that. Just trying to eliminate the problem but would like to know what it is by only changing one thing at a time.

    I bake my jigs 320 for 20 minutes. Don't add clear to disco colors. Back when I added clear to my colors I did a 50/50 ratio. So 2oz color to 2oz clear. I'd start with a 75/25 ratio 1st though then work your way up. Also only add clear to those colors giving you problems with the exception of disco colors as I stated. Most colors won't need clear. Black and orange are the only two colors that really give me fits at times. Once I dip in clear though it takes away blemishes. I might need to add a little clear myself.

    Going to get an oven thermometer to see what my toaster is actually doing. I’m almost scared to double dip in clear, I already have trouble with to much paint sometimes. I’m going to keep working on it and see what works for me. I will figure it out..... eventually

    also eventually want to get that crinkle coat as second coat figured out. It produces awesome looking jigs. Then the swirl look.
