Default Blade Bait Paint

Friend gave me a crapload of blade baits that are unpainted. They are part lead and then the blade part is gold metal.

What is the easiest way to paint these things?

Have never made my own tackle so I'm very ignorant on this.

Spray paint? Or something that you bake on like a powdercoat?

Damn, them some high dollar blade baits!

Use powder coat paint for the bodies. The same stuff you heat your jig heads up and dip them in. Use holographic stickers for the blades, if you want to at some extra flash...

That's all I got....

if you have a toaster oven that the wife dosnt use anymore hang your lures about 10 at a time, heat to 150 deg for about 10 min. use long nose pliers grab the blade as close to the clevis as you can, it helps to heat the pliers so they don't draw the heat from the blades. dip in the powder and hang up to cool. you can also use a propane torch for your first coat. if you want two or three colors you need to use an oven. after you are done hang all in an oven at 150 deg for a few minutes to harden the paint. rember that the thicker the paint the heavyer the blade gets and harder to spin. that said spray paint the blades white then hang to set the paint at 150 deg then use any color marks-a-lot you wish. i carry sharpies in the boat all the time, you can put a big black eye on a lure, or stripes, or lateral lines. sometimes that is the trigger you need

You can go to the dollar store and get all kinds of glitter colors.
Then if you want when your finished you can dip them in clear vinyl jig paint for a durable finish that wont chip like baked on jig paint.Its what I do with my slab spoons.If I make them or buy them,they all get dipped in clear vinyl paint.
