What method is the best way to paint 2 color eyes on leadheads?
Anyone have an eyedotting machine from Component? Do you like it?

Try using a dowl rod or a nail head and dotting the eyes. It works well on crankbaits.

You can use pencils erasers. Buy some cheap wooden #2's and use sand paper to size the erasers for the various dots you want. just wrap the paper around the eraser and spin the pencil a few times. Quick, cheap, easy,and it works!

Use dowls and a good old pencil sharpener to make to ends the size you want .
I make them so they are the Iris on one end and the pupil size on the other end.
