What kind of paints are you using?  I'm thinking about starting to do my own tungsten ice jigs.  Powdercoat base, some kind of liquid paint for dots/stripes, then either a dip into something to seal it all.

I used to get 1/64th oz Arkie jigs at the Wally World back in Oklahoma.  Haven't looked around up here in MI for them.  I've been ordering ball-head jigs on sickle hooks from chuckanddeb.com for years.  No collars on the jigs, just a plain ball head.  I need to order a bunch more.  Out of 1/80th size 12, almost out of 1/80th size 8, 1/64 size 8, and 1/32 size 8.

Hey Carl, how are you painting the eyes?  Toothpicks dipped into some kind of liquid paint?

Hey Carl is this as light as the Arkie line goes? I like 64th, 32nd and 24th oz. Jigs when I can find them . Do you need any Squirrel Tail?
