Spoon painting questions

Discussion in 'Tackle Making' started by bobby, Feb 12, 2008.

  1. I would like to paint some of my own spoons this summer and need some advice. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    1. When I purchase blank spoons, what should I purchase to get started? Brass? Nickel?

    2. Can you paint over a "plated" finish?

    3. Powder paint seems to be the best. Does anyone airbrush?

    4. Anyone who has painted spoons, is one place better than the next for purchasing spoon blanks? I found a couple of sites, but usually someone has good experience (or bad) with one company or another.

    Thank you for any responses.

    i painted over the spoons. used primer on some to change the shade of a color from the ones i did not primer. i used testors spray model paint and some paint markers. also try red, green and blue magic markers too. then spray a topcoat of clear on them alll.

    Bobby, do a search of this forum and the Lake Erie forum. There have been threads in both forums recently and should be able to help you out.
