    Combing Hair

    Smalljaws, I do indeed comb flash materials with a man's comb or small wire brush. It takes some patience but using the side of the comb where the teeth are further apart it eventually combs through. I mostly do this after changing the flash color with a permanent marker.I use the wire brush on the craft fur and the results are special. Hope you didn't think this was a trick question. Appreciate your experience,Jimmyjigs

    Segmented Paddle Tails

    Bought some segmented (accordian style) swim baits from the bargain bin. They are about 4" long. Can't find source? Jimmyjigs

    Powder paint drip?

    Ranger, There is a fine line that you dance when powder painting. I use a single burner propane camp stove and count seconds like Jig Man over the flame(Plus distance held over that flame is always the same). I ad any 2nd color with a small acid brush dipped in powder and tapped from above jig and hold over flame for just a short period of time till it shines. Hope this helps. Jimmyjigs

    Saltwater & Powder Paint

    Cadman, You are at the top of your game. Just the bottom(front) of the jig gets dull. Was pretty sure it was the sand,oysters etc. but thought there was a quick & easy solution. Thanks ! If someone requests the epoxy guess I'll use it. Otherwise I'll keep putting the dull ones in a jar of freshwater to take home for re-conditioning. Jimmyjigs

    Permanent Marker 4 Flash

    I have been using a brown or black permanent marker to darken flash material. How long can I expect this to last in saltwater?

    Saltwater & Powder Paint

    Cadman, I have never used Devcon 2 ton.Hada friend finish his jigs with Hobby Lobby Epoxy and they dulled like plastic headlight lenses. How do you dry it? He used an elaborate clock motor turning assembly. Thanks,Jimmyjigs
