  1. I just ordered the stuff so we shall see!
  2. Ok, so I lied! Looks like the nail gel coats are UV cured. I figure I can just dip a fresh buck tail in SolarEZ gloss to get the smooth base coat, then proceed with the rest and finish with a last coat of SolarEZ. Just ordered what I need, so I'll keep you all posted!
  3. Ok, I promise last thing on this nail polish stuff. It looks like the deal is that you paint a gel coat first, pretty sure this is to get a completely smooth surface. Next comes a black or white base coat, followed by the chrome, then clear coat. The holographic powder can be added to the clear coat. Makes sense if you want to get a mirror finish.
  4. One gallon of the holographic for ten bucks. https://www.amazon.com/Sparkly-Chameleon-Holographic-Rainbow-Irregular/dp/B0722RX2Z2/ref=sr_1_2_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1513135476&sr=1-2&keywords=Laser+Chameleon+Rainbow+Silver
  5. This stuff is holographic powder. I think mixed into the clear coat and applied on top of chrome would be like fishing with jewels. https://www.amazon.com/PhantomSky-Glitter-Decorations-Manicure-Accessories/dp/B076YQLVGL/ref=pd_sbs_201_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B076YQLVGL&pd_rd_r=0Y3HG8Q5MTQRSRCCRF0V&pd_rd_w=xhksY&pd_rd_wg=JpO4K&psc=1&refRID=0Y3HG8Q5MTQRSRCCRF0V
  6. Stuff comes in amazing colors, too. https://www.amazon.com/Matoen-Colors-Glitter-Shinning-Pigment/dp/B06XFBH8FL/ref=sr_1_5?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1513133757&sr=1-5&keywords=chrome+powder+coat
  7. I found this almost by accident. It's for fingernails, but it looks tailor made for lures. I think it would be especially good for lead jigs. The technique calls for applying a chrome powder, then a top coat of uv cure resin. How easy is that?! 39 cents with a dollar ninety nine shipping. https://www.amazon.com/Mirror-Powder-Effect-Pigment-XUANOU/dp/B075RS6Z4D/ref=sr_1_9?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1513133757&sr=1-9&keywords=chrome+powder+coat
  8. I just found this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/Mirror-Powder-Effect-Pigment-XUANOU/dp/B075RS6Z4D/ref=sr_1_9?s=arts-crafts&ie=UTF8&qid=1513133757&sr=1-9&keywords=chrome+powder+coat The recommended top coat is uv cure. Put this stuff on a newly cast shiny jig, and it should rock.
  9. Cadman, How do you keep from over/under heating when painting 4-5 colors? I have a mini sand blasting gun I use for my bucktails, and I've been wanting to try more than one color on a jig. I was thinking of building myself a painting jig where I hang the lures off a lazy susan style hanger. I'd rotate each jig over a mounted heat gun, just before powder coating it. I think for that to work, I would need a digital heat gun.
  10. Anglinarcher you'd only end up dying horribly in jail after poisoning yourself with the chemicals, just to be arrested by the DEC for running an illegal operation using environmentally deadly chemicals!
  11. Finally! That ornithology class in high school paid off!
  12. There's this: http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-extreme-chrome-bonded-powder.html?mrkgcl=764&mrkgadid={_mrkgadid}&rkg_id=h-3b4db8cccf30af47ed0df310b0b86c59_t-1512944697&product_id={product_id}&adpos={adposition}&creative={creative}&device={device}&matchtype={matchtype}&network={network}&SRCCODE=PLA00020&gclid=EAIaIQobChMImMexmL6A2AIVFoGzCh3buw51EAQYASABEgL_M_D_BwE Powder coat, and much cheaper.
  13. Hi Cadman,

    I was reading a convo on powder coating. Fishon-son mentioned you have plans for a fluid bed that you might share. Would you mind PM'ing me with the plans?

         BTW my name is Ted what's yours? Attached are the fluid bed plans. If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me or PM me and I will help you out. Also I do sell a wide variety of raw jigs along with bulk powder paint. Below is your tutorial.

  14. One of our local high school fishing clubs holds a fishing flea market every year. It's become so popular, they now have expanded to include the cafeteria across the hall. I have the contact info for the teacher who runs it, if you're interested in how something like that is coordinated.
