Texturing 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.

Applying Stripes and Patterns tn_hcapplicator_jpg.jpg (1091 bytes)
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.
