    Satin Black shake N bake

    I think I found one that works. Eastwood Satin Black Hotcoat. This was just a test batch with 60 seconds of shake n swirl no BBs. It's not flat black but it has the dull finish I have been looking for.

    Boy those look good. Did they stick together when cooked? Any bare spots?
    At one with the gun.

    I don't use a wire tray. I pick them out with a pair of needle nose and line them on a toaster oven cookie sheet lined with non stick foil. Every now and then I get a tiny scratch from the needle nose. I'm going try the latex gloves with a 50 round empty shell case.
    I also tried the Yellow orange from Eastwood and it worked just as well.

    Use Nitrile gloves, not latex. They work better ans if you do get a scratch, you can often just dab a bit of pc on the finger then touch it to the scratch to recoat the spot. In fact, I just don't bother with pliers of any kind and just carefully handle the bullets using the nitrile gloves. I seldom have any bare spots from handling.

    I have good luck with Eastwood powder. The prettiest bullets I've coated so far were Eastwood mirror black applied with an electrostatic gun. So slick they were hard to pick up. Gp

    Those are some nice looking bullets. Haven't had much luck with black, will have to look at eastwood. I stopped with foil with shake and bake, parchment paper works better if you shake. can get 4 uses out of 1 sheet. I only use foil if I spray. I use latex gloves, will have to look into Nitrile gloves
