Spoons and Spinner Blades
Texturing spoons and spinner blades is done by placing netting
(available at fabric stores) over the still warm spoon, then applying a generous
amount of powder paint and smoothing it with a brush, and removing the netting.
The spoon is then reheated to melt the paint. If baking textured spoons reduce
the heat to 225°F (105°C) so the texture doesn't smooth itself out. If you try
to texture the spoon when it is too hot, the netting may stick to the paint.
This is most easily done if you have help holding the netting while you apply
the glitter coat.
Stripes and Patterns
A head cement applicator bottle (code: 74-50-01 price $3.99) is
handy for applying stripes and splash patterns to jigs and for quickly coating
spoons and spinner blades with powder paint. Simply fill the applicator bottle
¼ to ½ full with your favorite colour of powder paint. Gently squeeze the
applicator bottle in a vertical position as you move it over the pre-warmed jig
or blade. A plastic container below your work will collect any excess powder
paint for reuse.
