Hi, Can anyone describe the best method (or any decent method) of two tone powder paint coating lead heads> I can't seem to get a decent line, say between a chartreuse back and a white bottom? Thanks CaseyGhee

One way is to put the second color in a salt shaker and "salt" it on. Not elegant but it works and is cheap. There are also air brush style applicators available but they also require a compressor and the process tends to be messy. You definately need a collection system of some sort to capture the airborne powder.

Heat jig, swirl through the first color as normal, then while the jig is still hot, apply the second color. You can use a small hobby paint brush to apply the second color. Just dip the brush in the powder and hit the back of the jig with it. Will take a little practice, but after a while you'll get a nice fade where the two colors come together. I did a how too on jig making probably 7-8 years ago that showed how to do this. Should be able to find that in a search here.
