if you use powder paint it will last longer and you wont have to use any clear coat

I think it's a pain whichever way you do it! The best I've come up with it is to stick a round toothpick in both ends and then stick it into a piece of styrofoam to dry/cure. I can never get powder paint to work without globbing the paint up on the weight, and heating tungsten weights also melts the plastic antiabrasion tubes inside them.
