Waterbased paint is mixed to flow well in our airbrush sets. Waterbased paint is easy to cleanup and has very little odor.
Can you paint fishing lures?
Homemade fishing lures can look just as professional as the ones you purchase at the store if your technique is perfected. Artistically talented people can paint fishing lures by hand, but you can also learn how to paint fishing lures with an airbrush, which is the way that most people accomplish this task.

Can you use acrylic paint on jig heads?
It might work. Not much impact on small ice jigs, so almost any paint should hold up fairly well. My concern would be the waterbased paint. Most air dried w/b acrylics are fine with a good amount of water exposure, but will eventually cloud up from the water penetration.
