RE: Going Big - LMB
Thanks for the comments everyone! Smile

LH - Powder paint one of these days... but wow would i need lots of different colors! For now - NP is fairly cheap with hundreds of colors to choose from and if i don't like the result of a color - my daughter will gladly take it. It has taken some time, but have figured out ways to blend colors top to bottom and make a smooth gradient.

Pup - I did not use thinner, but can see where it would be needed with this 5 min stuff. Will give it a try. Only did these 2 heads and weed guards on 2 others - any more time and it would have gotten too hard to deal with!

RD & JSC - Big Grin @ 1/4oz., these will ONLY be tied on one of my walleye/bass medium action rods that are spooled with 12lb line. If i loose one on a monster fish, that wouldn't hurt my feelings too bad...... on a rock or downed tree - cover your ears children!!!!!!!

steve r. - Never gave these a thought for the smallies, that 4/0 hook looks HUGE!!! Tongue I bet the style would work though, may have to make some up with lighter heads/smaller hooks.

NIIICE! Great looking ties! I especially like the heads you painted and epoxied. That epoxy over the paint/polish and glitter really brings it to life. The time you put into those jigs really shows. Icon14

Half hour to tie? You're looking at a few hours of time for me to get one of those done. Really nice work.Paint is exceptional.
