Sure you can. There are many vendors on this site as well as ebay that sell raw jig heads.

I saw a guy paint a jig head and use a heat gun to dry the paint with. Is that a decent way of doing it?

He was probably powder coating the jig head. That's how most of the tyers paint their head.

Tx, the easiest way to get the "Blended" two tone look is by brush tapping a 2nd color over a solid color 1st coat. This YouTube video is the one I learned by
http://youtu.be/g1TPCZqXrRY
If you want a more "Crisp" division between 2 colors, I dip jig completely in 1 color then dip a portion of the jig in the 2nd color. This is the best example I could put my hand on..

I get my tying kit in tomorrow or so and am really excited about learning to tie jigs. Hopefully i can figure out how to post a pic on here when i get a few jigs made. I would love to have some of you pro's comment on what i need to do differently.

When adding glitter and/or micca powders to clear powder paint, can it still be oven cured?

Can anyone give me any tips on the pumkin brown powder coat. It runs when I cure it in the oven. I've tried lower temp, shorter time, lighter coats on the jig head. I've baked around 10 colors and have had no problems with any other color.

I always use it as a second coat, as its clear all it really adds in the visible range is a clear coat bit glows great in UV.

Has anyone used Spike-it brand powder coat. My local Academy had 2oz containers on clearance for .68 and I purchased all they had. I spent less than $10 so it is no biggie to me.
