how to Use Granite Dust
HEAT • DIP • YOU'RE DONE!
It works best to pour your powder into a shallow bowl. Stir Granite Dust until it is light and fluffy. Hold your jighead over your heat source for just a few seconds. Larger jigheads will take longer to heat than smaller ones. Spinner blades don't take long either. Be careful not to overheat jigheads as the lead may melt and fall off. You want your lure to be 250-300°. A torch is fast but you must pay close attention. A heat gun takes a little longer but produces very good results. Hold your jighead with a pliers with the eye hole upwards. Briskly run the jig through the powder. Don't dip like vinyl paint but rather just skim the surface of Granite Dust. As soon as you remove your jig, tap it on the side of the bowl to remove excess powder. Hang on a rack or dip into a cup of water to allow jighead to cool and coating to dry. Jig is now coated with only one coat.
USE IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA. KEEP OUT OF EYES. AVOID PROLONGED CONTACT WITH SKIN. DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. IF SWALLOWED INDUCE VOMITING. CALL A PHYSICIAN. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. STORE IN A COOL DRY PLACE.
To coat two-tone or glitter finishes simply dip into second color or glitter while the lure is still warm. If your jig comes out dull or powdery, it was not hot enough when dipped into the powder. Simply wave over the heat until the finish shines. If the jig has too much powder, lumps, or bubbles, it was too hot.
The coating on your jig is harder than most other paints. It is also possible to bake Granite Dust. This makes the finish incredibly hard. To do so, simply hang jigs on an oven rack and bake 10-15 minutes at 300°. Any finishes with glitter should be baked at 250° for 25-30 minutes. Make sure eye hole is clear of powder before baking. Finish is now incredibly hard and is also rubber worm proof.
