Default Cobia Jig paints

So Iíve decided to start making cobia jigs to sale, but being new at this Iím trying to figure out the basics. My number one question is concerning the jig heads them selves. Now Iíve already learned how to make them but Iím stumped on the painting part. Now Iíve got my hands on some of the powder paints but they donít really do very well when it comes to making the jig heads have more then one color on them. Now I have heard of hydro dipping them, I just donít know what types of paints are best for it. So any kind of suggestions, tip and techniques yíall donít mind sharing I would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I use powder paints on vertical jigs.

Default Cobia Jig paints

I agree with that when it comes to to vertical jigs, definitely, but my question revolves around how I might be able to take my cobia jig heads and have them come out looking like the ones that are sold in the bait stores, and like I mentioned earlier. The only thing that I could think of right of the top of my head was maybe they hydro dip them. Being that was the only conclusion I could come up with that made sense with the way the jigs look when the come out.
