Multiple Colors Powder Coated

Recommended Posts

You don't need to cure separate colors most of the time. I have one pattern, Table Rock Shad, that I have to cure the base coat first before adding the accent color. That pattern has a chartreuse body with a purple back and when I do the body and then add the purple and then cure it,  where ever the purple touches the chartreuse it turns brown. So I paint the chartreuse and then cure and afterward I add the purple and then cure again with the purple and no problem. That is a rare case, most of the time the colors don't blend when curing. I use a hobby sandblaster to spray powder paint, it is like an air brush but you can't do fine detail. The good part is that you can blend colors and you can get good fading effects, watch my video on how I do this.

Thanks for the tip. I sometimes look at an airbrush color chart to check how certain colors look with a white base coat versus a black base coat. It gives a  decent color comparison light to dark with any combination. Dick Blick catalogs shows examples in the airbrush paint section. I sometimes think it's better than a color wheel.

I have done a couple of jigs using Boss crinkle powder coat and further searching found a guy on jigcraft.com he goes by jungle jim. Check out some of his work. I don't know the exact process he uses, but I come close with just a few jigs. 

Jim does amazing work. He posts a lot  on do-its forums & tries to help everybody out by explaining how to do about everything he does when it comes to jigs.
