First of all you have to decide if you are going to use powder paint for jigs and spinnerbaits or are you going to use Createx or lacquer paint:

Powder paint : You heat the jig , swish thru powder paint , bake the jig and you're done.

Createx: Is a water based paint. You will probably need to use primer, then paint  and you must clear coat otherwise the paint will wash off.

Lacquer Paint:  You can use either an air brush or spray cans. Primer, paint and you're probably done. Maybe clear coat for durability. If you use lacquer, you must have very good ventilation. The fumes are bad for your lungs.

 

That's about as simply put as I can tell you. Naturally there is a lot more to it than that. You need to decide which way you want to go.

I pretty much powder paint all of my jigs as it is the easiest. Pour, paint, bake, done.  Maybe someone else will give you some tips painting with lacquer. Good Luck.

I use etching primer (thank you Cadman), Createx painted with a small artist's brush, and clear nail polish for my spinnerbaits, swim jigs, and chatter baits.  I powder coat my jigs.
