Whats The Best Method To Paint A Bismuth/tin Jighead?

3 posts in this topic

If done right, powder paint is the fastest, most durable way to paint a jig head. I recommend you check the wire baits forum for info on it. If you are looking for more variability in color than you can get with powder paint, you might try airbrushing them with lacquer or acrylic latex paint topcoated with a moisture cured urethane like Dick Nite S81.

Powderpaint needs to be heated to a temperature beyond that of the melting point of the alloy to cure it properly. I used to use vinyl jig paint and remember it as being very durable and the colors seemed much brighter than powder. It stinks to high heaven though and drips were a problem. I suppose if you had a drying wheel you could eliminate the sags. You can also spray it through an airbrush thinned but the fumes are brutal. Good luck.
