Coating jigs

Recommended Posts

          I know this is not new. But things are always changing. Thoughts on best jig clear or top coat. I’ve heard and seen everything from Sally Hensens nail polish, to KBS, epoxy mix, etc….

      I bake my paint on but have seen a lot of people using a clear or top coat on their jigs to make sure to keep the eyes on their jigs. So…. I am asking those who have used different types of coatings for their opinions and what they use?

I like Devcon 2 to (D2T). Reason being is the finish is hard when it cures and that is about 24-36 hours. The only drawback is that D2T has a slight amber color to it and it will make your white jigs not as white. But for other colors it works really well. JMO.

I've been using KBS clear spray. Just actually did another batch for a guy last night. Do It freestyle jig with flat glow eye stickers. So far been able to wear hooks out before any eyes fall off.

If i was doing 3D eyes i might dip them. But you can see the clear sealed around the eyes

I've been using clear cement sealer for years. It's glossy hard as kbs ,the only problem is you have to buy a gallon but I've been using the same stuff for 5 yrs cheaper in the long run pour in quart jar use it out of jar. This isn't standard what people are lead to use but works

The cement sealer I used a few years back reacted with soft plastics, and got soft if I left it on wet boat carpet overnight.  Once it dried out it was hard again.
