    Is there anyway to fix my lure?

    The white powder is from the oxidation of the internal weight. There is no way to clear this lure up other than separating the two halves and cleaning the inside.

    Is there anyway to fix my lure?

    The only way I know of is to dissect the lure and clean it up from the inside.

    I doubt you will find any blanks with good hunting action.

    Clear coat drying

    Depends on what clear coat you are using. Epoxy must be turned. MCU, not necessary. Spray on clear coat, such as automotive, not necessary

    Holographic/Color Shift

    It not paint. Its holographic foil tape. Do a google search. There are many brands. Here's one. https://www.barlowstackle.com/Lure-Tape-SheetsbrHolographic-Scale-Pattern--P993.aspx

    clear coating

    Kbs spray is gloss
  12. Well I'm pretty sure that color shift is only painted over a smooth black base coat and no normal paint should be applied over it or you will lose some or all of the shift. With KBS, I always use 2 to 3 coats. The directions say for marine application 3 coats are required.
  13. I don’t think the fish care if you use color shift at all. It all boils down to how much color shift YOU and your customers want.
  14. I guess it's like the old saying you "get what you pay for."
  15. I just don't think the folk art color shift is a strong color shift like Spaz Stix paints and other color shift paints. Auto air makes a strong color shift, I think it's their 4400 series. The folk art won't do this.
