Glo Paint

Recommended Posts

I have never used the glo paint. ButI do use a colored minnow powder which seems to increase the number of strikes on my tip up minnows.

The stuff I have works wonders on Tonka

i got a couple jars of glow paint from gander a couple weeks ago. It is the powder that you heat the jigs wih a lighter and then when you dip them in the powder it forms a really smooth finish on the jig. The chartreuse has an amazin long-lasting glow but i am no so impressed with the orange, it lasts a long time but is not so bright.

Here's a little hint that you may find helpful when looking for a "glow" paint for jigs. First apply a white under coat, then the glow. For color, use a transparent coat. The products I use are powder paint products for the base and glow coat and the top coat is called "color-rite, blade and plug dip". The big problem with the colored glow, one dip stuff is that the color itself will help to cover the glow agent. By using the transparent coat for color you allow the glow-over white undercoat to get more glow to the surface and by doing it this way the top coat will sort of glow in the color you see...much like the super glow lures that are so popular now.

Hey Guys: I've found the dipping method works better for me. Yes, the undercoat will make them much brighter.. I just dip'em and place the over a rod to dry. You don't waste paint with the overspray either.... Kaz

One sugestion when curing powder paints in your wifes oven.
Put some tin foil down in case the jigs fall. Getting the paint off of hot oven surfaces can hard to do and life threating when the wife finds out.

I forgot to add, I get the type paint, where you heat the jig with a propane torch a little and then dip it. That way you don't worry about the paint not drying fast. I also put dots for eyes on them...Kaz
