Default Looking to paint some jig heads

So Im just starting to paint jig heads for the first time, and was wondering if yall could help me with some things. My first question is regard to actually painting the jig heads and on some of the ways one can paint them. Then my second question is on some methods and types of paints to use. Any kind of tips would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Is this like not using your wife's hair dryer to fan your charcoal grill to get it hotter faster, and then putting it back in the bathroom and not saying anything? Don't ask me how I know that either.

If you don’t like the powder paint, purchase the 2-part paint used for repairing cast iron bathtubs. The white base coat adheres very well to the jig head, and you can paint over it with whatever color you like. I mix it in very small batches (use the measuring cups from a pharmacy), put on one coat, put the remainder of the paint and the brush in the freezer, and put a second coat on the next day. The paint thaws out very quickly, and the brush survives pretty well. In my experience, it is equal to, or perhaps better than, powder coating. My primary experience is with jigging spoons, but I also paint all my jigs this way. For interesting finishes, use nail polish over the base coat.
