I use to make and still do when I need more 1/8 and 1/4 oz jigs. I never painted them as a general rule, when I tied one on I take my knife and scrape the head to make it shine. I do take a spray bomb and hit them when I'm being picky, however don't really pay much attention to them unless walleye fishing.
If you plan on doing Sauger heads 1oz and larger I'll take a hundred if your so inclined.
Use the best hook you can find although.
