When applying UV Blast as a top coat should the curing process be done for the final step and what is the cure time and temp for it?

Hey you just dip in that after the color and cure at same time and I cure at same temp as the color on mine. It's just like a clear coat.

I do not use that color, but I also know some colors seem not need the lead to have been in the fire as long as another one. So ones I know are prone to get too much paint on, I just hold in the fire a little less time and seems to work fine for me. I do not change my heat or time in over ever unless I am using Pearl White which demands a lower temp! I keep my temp between 390 and 400 and have actually put a thermometer in my toaster oven so I would know where it has to be set to reach the themes I want. If I use my large oven then I just use it's settings, but the small ovens are usually not accurate on temps. So I also know if I take a load out and put a new load in it's cooled and will take almost 2 minutes to reach temp so I cure for 17 minutes as I need 15 minutes with the lead at themes as that is what that means, the lead need to be at that temp to cure right.

So for that color I would just find how long I need leave it in the fire/heat to determine the right amount of paint so it downs drip! Way back when I started I seemed to always have trouble with Black dripping so finally I just adjusted the length of time in the fire and a 2 count. I count not by real seconds, but more just my cadence.

I have always cured mine and I believe in it. I don't want to go through the process of heating lead and paint any more than I have to so may as well do it right the first time. If you bother to take enough time to use powder paint then use the extra time to help seal the deal with curing. It's worth it as others have said for dock shooting and bouncing off rocks, etc.

Toaster oven at a garage sale and around 350 for most just depends on the color and the manufacturer. I have used black from one manufacturer and it ran at 275 and anther I could get away with 350 in the same color. Get to know your toaster oven as Skip has said with a thermometer to know what is truly going on.

After trying nearly 10 different colors I have found that I actually prefer an unpainted jig head. I get more bites with it...or so I feel like I do. Maybe I should try silver and see if I like that. Anybody else just use an unpainted jig head?

Just saw this. I use unpainted heads 95% of the time and probably 80% of my sales are unpainted. I think it's a confidence thing more than anything else. That's just my opinion.

When I'm retired, I'll definitely think about having my own 'lil shop' and making/baking my own jig heads. Cheaper I'm sure and self-satisfying to catch fish on a jig you made.

Until then, I'll just get mine from Jerry, Slab, or Academy. smile
