A better product is vinyl jig paint. Very tough stuff and nothing to bake on, just dip and dry. I begin with a white primer then one's chosen color, lasts a long time. Cabelas sells it and so do a number of on-line retailers. Goggle it.
Blue, yes the stillwater beads are pricey, I buy my tungsten beads from a shop close to me and they are half what other shops want for them. I wont say the shops name since they are not a site sponser.
