How do you do your two tone colors so well? I don't have a good technique for that.

Who carries the clear powder locally? So that I can run out and get it and not have to order online and wait for it?

Check out barlows. If not then crazy angler and you'll have it in a couple of days. Some of the fastest shipping I've ever had.

What is a good brand of clear coat I can use on my Slabs? I do use a stick on tape sometimes?
Thanks

What are you trying to clear coat Bernie.Most of us use a clear powder paint to thin our colors or use it to add glitter to the mix.

If just trying to top coat your slabs with a clear any brand will do fine,,,,,but keep in mind it does need to be heated and cured as any PP,so it could affect your tape or decals...

Be happy to send you some if you want to experiment with it.

Or, if you just want a clear, hard top-coat, you could try Sally Henson's Hard as Nails. I top coat all my jigs with eyes like that, mainly to seal the eyes.

A couple notes for you, first I wish I had told you sooner about if the eye is full of paint after baking, I use a bodkin with a skinny needle and I heat the point pretty good and stick that through the eye melting the paint to make a hole. Works great and clean a little after with my thumb nail or a small file like used to clean torch tips and such.
Also I finally took my toaster oven and check the tems with an over thermometer and found it was off to the low side so I started setting it at about 425 which in mine ends up being about 390 something so then I went back to 16 minutes which gives the oven time to heat up some before it gets to the 15 minutes I use now.

I do this when I am about to tie the jig, don't waste time doing al them separate before you are going to use it to tie.

Hope this helps everyone!

Only problem I find with this is on 2 colors, FL Yellow and FL Green Chart and that fingernail polish will change these 2 so I use Clear Vinly on these and no color change and actually works great, but doesn't dry as fast!

As for the eyes I have started glueing them on with Locktite brush on super glue and use the brush to just put a small amount on and seems to work great!

Here's what Pepop inspired me to make to keep from getting parrot nose.





I can cure 48 at a time. Works pretty good. Cost about $30, but I already had the stainless. Well, almost $50, since I went through about 6 jigsaw blades!

2 New Colors & a new Look!
Got an order from Rosey's yesterday with 2 new color's and some more of 1 I was low on. The new; Light Orchid Metallic I think will go good with Skip's new Rosey Red chenille and the Dark Green Metallic (sorry, just looks black in the picture)is just that, a REAL DARK green with a Metallic luster. I think it'll do better as a Transparent or "Candy" Dark Green with a little mixed with the new 200% Gloss Glass Clear I also got. The other color is Pearlescent White which I LOVE and I mixed some of Sac-Lait-Pat's "Firecracker" glitter with the new clear and used as an over-coat.

I've been having the same problem for a while and everytime I try and cure I get the same results.

I have learned to use as little paint as possible to make a good cover. I use a heat gun and keep testing where you keep the head in the heat just long enough to make the powder paint melt when dipped. On my heat gun it works best for me using 10 seconds each side and dip.

I also found using jig clamps like TJ's sells keeps the excess to run down the shaft and you can take a knife and cut right behind the head to cut off the excess. I am curing 60 jigs at a time now and usually only get 1 - 2 jigs with too much powder paint on them with a small run. It does take practice to get the right heat and paint amount. I preheat my toaster oven to 350 degrees and put the jigs in for 20 minutes which is what TJ's recommends and it seems to be a good combination.

Candle might have made it somewhat darker, but the glow green in protech is a deep hunter green and not the color of the powder.
