Yep you can't go just by the color of the dry powder after heating it its going to be darker for the most part. Exception's would be the lighter colors such as white, pink and yellows.

How expensive is the powder coatings you guys use? I'm just curious because I am a paint chemist that formulates powder coatings and I am curious. Since seeing this forum I have been thinking I could help some of you guys out with powder coatings. In our factory we are on pace to produce about 18 million pounds of powder this year. We have samples of powder used for quality control that are probably 1/2 lb. or more and they often just get thrown away. I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in getting some free powder to use for jig heads? I really don't want to charge anything for the samples but I'd be happy to pick some interesting colors and give them to someone to try. I live in the Denton area and would be happy to meet you somewhere to deliver some powder. If anyone is interested, just give me a pm and I will try to find some samples. I am not looking to make this a business venture so I will not be taking orders or charging for the powder, I just thought I could help some folks save a little money and maybe let them try some different colors without having to invest in untested colors.

Awesome offer man. Our pp runs from 7-8 bucks for 2 oz contIners with #'s between 10-20.00 $

1/2 # will go a long ways painting jig heads. Couple oz containers will last year or two, and I paint a lot. Im sure lots of folks here could use some samples. I'd sure be happy to pay any postage or costs if you have any florecent or candy type colors.

Already sent pm. 2oz samples are more than enough. I have about 25 lbs of various colors, if anyone wants to trade colors.

Sorry, but I really don't want to mail or ship any powder. I don't want to deal with various safety and environmental issues involved. Even though it is only a small quantity, you can still get in trouble.

I have a question for you guy's. I just started and learning how to power paint jigs. The problem I am having is keeping the pain out of the eye's. I have tried poking it out with a wire after you dip it but the paint just pulls back into the eye when I pull the wire out. Help please what am I doing wrong. The jig heads look great it's just the eye problem. Thanks

Yes it does, but can easily be removed. I just have a small pair of pliers that I open the hemostats, grab and end with the pliers and slighty twist. The paint comps right off since it is not cured. Easy peasy. Usually do this in between colors.

I think the easiest way is to hold by the hook, dip in fluid bed, and punch it out with a pair of cheap dentist tools from Harbour Freight before baking.
