Powder Painting Spinner Blades and Spoons

Applying our specially formulated powder paints to your spoons and spinner blades is quick and easy for both low and medium sized production runs. With 45 powder paint colours and finishes to choose from your possibilities will be endless.

  1. Heat the blade by holding it 1 inch above a non-smoking candle flame (must be non-smoking — keep the the wick trimmed to about one quarter inch in length) roughly 5-10 seconds depending on blade size.

  2. Once hot, quickly swish blade through light powder paint with side to side motion to cover the entire surface. Do not dip or push blade into powder paint.

  3. Remove blade immediately and tap off any excess powder. The blade should appear powdery and dry. If you see the paint melt or smokes, after the excess has been tapped off, reduce the preheat time.

  4. Now, reheat the blade by holding it 1 inch above a non-smoking candle flame until the paint begins to melt and gloss over.

    Always try to work
    on the cool side, as it is easy to add a little more heat to melt the paint, rather than having too much paint on the jig to start with. Wait a few seconds for the jig to cool before allowing it to touch anything, the paint hardens quickly. Always keep the powder paint loose and fluffy between jigs.

If the powder paint has not completely melted, after removing the jig from the powder paint, again hold the lure 1 inch above the flame and allow the powder paint to melt completely.
