Very nice reborn. Ive been pouring and painting jigs for years and just ordered some crafthair, vise and other tools and tied my first couple tonight not near as nice as yours. Did you paint the jig too? Nice paint job.

dont be afraid to put as big a hook as possible on them suckers, you can always grind the space out on the mold to accomidate larger hooks

They do look good. Yes I use a fluid bed and I love it but have often thought about an airbrush for spoons and blades.

Here are my first attempt at hair jigs.

Here is a picture of my work area I set up in the basement. This is from a year ago and has changed alot but you get the idea.

And here is just some random jig pictures

Those look nice. Do you air brush in there as well? Never air brushed before, thought about it but have yet to try it. I would be concerned about any kind of over spray or is that a non-issue with air brushing?
