    KBS too thin?

    It takes weeks to fully harden...

    overcoat for chrome?

    Amyl acetate is a solvent. What does it do? Does it interact with the heat activated adhesive? How do you use it? Do you apply it to the foil or the lure?

    KBS Diamond Coat on jigs

    I have and use KBS for crankbaits. But for jigs, chatterbaits, and spinnerbaits with Createx paint finishes, I use clear nail polish from the Dollar Store. It does the same thing for a lot less, and is much easier to apply and store.

    KBS too thin?

    I like it. It holds up really well, and doesn't seem to change the paint scheme colors, except to deepen them a little. I have not tried it over a chrome lure, so I don't know how it would affect chrome. I use it for all my one piece lures that I can dip. I do wait until I have several lures painted, so I minimize the open time, but the screw top pickle jar/plastic layers/bloxygen has made storage perfect. No skinning. The next batch I dip I'll let them drip back into the dipping jar, to see how that works. I fish lures after two days, but I think it takes about four days to get really hard. For me, even after four days, it still gets hook rash, so I put a coat of clear nail polish over the path of the belly treble.

    Ideas on painting this pattern or similar

    I think I would buy willowleaf blade stickers and paint your pattern afterwards. http://www.lurepartsonline.com/Online-Store/Lure-Stickers/Willowleaf-Blade-Stickers.html http://www.lurepartsonline.com/Online-Store/Lure-Stickers/Holo-Scale-Willow-Blade-Stickers_2.html http://www.lurepartsonline.com/Online-Store/Lure-Stickers/Show-Stopper-Willow-Blade-Stickers.html

    KBS Diamond Coat on jigs

    I have had a quart can of KBS for a couple years. I used the tap the can method to get just the amount I need and used bloxygen to cover the top of it with inert gas for storage. It’s worked like a champ. Now I just take the bottom screw out to access what I need and reinsert the screw. Use with confidence.

    KBS Diamond Coat on jigs

    Just to clarify - the small bottles were only being used for a day or so, not long term storage. The Press and Seal seems to work fine, but I may try getting a few jars - about 4 oz or so - and filling them almost to the top, spraying with Paint Saver and see whether I could use them for long term storage of smaller aliquots. I will keep you guys posted. Pete

    KBS Diamond Coat on jigs

    Try using a mason jar and adding a thicker plastic under the lid to help seal. It also helps to prevent the lid for adhering to the jar; if this happens you will probably have to break the glass to remove lid. I pour just enough into a separate small cup and brush it on my jigs, also covering the thread.

    KBS Diamond Coat on jigs

    So far, I have used KBS on some jigs, but I have NOT fished the jigs yet. My opinion is that it is easy to apply, and that it provides a clear, hard finish. It dries fast - a second coat can be applied after the first coat is allowed to dry for 2-3 hours. That makes things a lot easier. Will it hold up to bouncing off rocks? I THINK so, but that is just my feeling - and is NOT based on actual experience. As for shelf life - I have had some different results based upon the situation. After I bought the Diamond Coat I also bought some KBS Paint Saver - see the KBS Diamond Coat site. After opening the can I put a small amount in a 2 oz bottle, added a layer of Press And Seal kitchen wrap over the lid, sprayed the Paint Saver, and pressed the lid down. I used about half the coating in the 2 oz bottle and added a cap (also a layer of kitchen wrap over the mouth of the bottle) . In about 2 days the remainder of the coat in the bottle became solid. However, the coat could certainly be used the next day.. BTW, even when it was becoming a bit thicker, you could still add thinner and get some more use out of the coating in the bottle. That being said, the use of the Paint Saver is important - and it is CRITICAL to keep the can closed tightly. I messed up one can because I put the lid back on and I thought that it was well seated. About a week later I went to use the coating and I could see a small gap between the liid and the can and the KBS was solid as a rock! My guess is that the lid was not seated firmly, and we had some warm temperatures which cause pressure in the can to build abd pop the lid. i should be getting another can of KBS and more Paint Saver today. I am going to try aliquoting some imto small jars and using the Paint Saver in the small jars to see whether that is a good storage method which might be more convenient than the pint or quart cans. I will keep you guys posted on the results of my experiments with KBS. Pete

    Mold making

    This place in in NYC.... but atleast you can read up on the products... I've used the ultracal.... it's great stuff.... you just have to mix it with a sifter slowly - isn't really a pain - but obviously no as easy as standard POP.

    Spraying powder paint!

    Lots of projects this spring, so I am a little behind. I always have e-tex and I expect it to be good but the standard epoxy sort of annoying. KBS is a possibility, I have never used it but since the painted jigs I am making are more trout/salmon not pike/walleye impact and flex resistance is more important than tooth abrasion resistance. Two brush coats should be nice and easy. The dark horse in this is powder clear, supposedly createx type paints can take 350 f the clear I have can cross link at 325 f I have a lake trout derby beginning of August so I have a deadline for getting this done
