    heat gun....and a brush....that's the way I am painting my butterfly jigs so far(I really like the sapphire blue on the tops(backs) of the butterfly jigs....so I painted mine with that)....waited for the bride to go to bed to bake them in the oven though....wanted to do them at the cabin we have....... and hardly ever use that oven....but time is running out...[img width=19 height=25]http://i44.tinypic.com/2vv2ctf.gif[/img]

    If I could find a way to get my drying motor to spin one I would be all over it. I think I am gonna track down a pepto bismol label and then try and clear coat it on.

    wish I was good at painting...but I am not....maybe something I should try in the next few months, Lord know it would help my butterfly jig painting...that is crud at best....I hope the fish don't mind, down deep!!!! ....could be all for nothing..... if they don't catch a few....except for a little enjoyment that will be better if they help fill a cooler :eat: :eat:
