Jig Head Paint Touch Up
« on: June 08, 2018, 01:57:10 PM »

What kind of paint do y'all use for touching up a jighead when the paint scratches off? I figure that I will sand off the remaining paint and dip the head in some sort of new paint. Will that work? Also where to buy.. Lowe's, Walmart, craft store?

If a jig gets all scratched and the paint is coming off, just leave it alone.  The battle scars are a badge of honor and for some reason the fish don't care and in fact seem to like them better.   ~c~

Get you a cheap toaster oven, and a small bottle of powder coat powder and get after it... lol

I have a toaster oven for baking shaky heads.

I think Buds answer is the best way to go. I wouldn't try powder over paint, the smell wouldn't be very nice.

I keep some powder coat in the boat and a lighter. A quick and easy fix. No need to clear the power coat.

I've re- coated some heads that had dings with powder paints, but don't usually try it with those that have been fished & dinged up. Usually the hook takes a beating too, so not worth it. I just recycle the lead for pouring new jigs.  With re-coating, you really have to watch the temperatures or might as well just not bother. Wizards approach is as good as any if you're fixing scratches, but IMO Bud's answer is what I do most often.

In a pinch, I've touched up some jigs with permanent markers, both heads & hooks. It's only a temporary fix, and doesn't last very long. It's a good way to keep hooks that have been sharpened or the finish dinged, from rusting in a tackle box.
