How do you powder pain your jig heads for the highest quality? The ones I buy that are pre-painted chip easily and I want to do it myself.

Propane burner and the powder, that's it! Heat it and dip it.

You also need to bake them in the oven for the prescribed time - this sets the paint and hardens the finish - a cheap toaster oven keep your jigheads out of the kitchen and you out of trouble....

You can also clear coat them with 2 part epoxy. Jig finish will last 3 to 4 times longer. Once clearcoat starts wearing just r-apply clearcoat to bottom of jig.
