Painted Jig heads

Painted Jig heads

I have been painting my jig heads with a ceramic like paint called Pebeo Porcelaine 150. It is water soluble, no smell and durable. I use a tooth pick to apply the paint. You let it dry and then bake it in the oven. In the picture you will see the 4 colors I like to use.

Abyss Black #41
Peridot Green #30
Ivory(white) #43
Agate Orange #04 or Saffron Orange #03

You can paint any metal or glass.

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
