  4. Devcon works great, BUT.....

    In regards to ETEX. This is a thinner top coat. It wont yellow. 2 properties that I will share as I did a long time ago. I was given alot of insight by Richoc and he put Carolina Chip onto it as well. They say Co2 is what causes the bubbles to release. Co2 will release the bubbles however the problem is deeper. In order to for a liquid to release airbubbles, the bubbles have to be able to rise to the surface. If you have a substance so thick that they bubbles cant rise, the bubbles wont be released. People have said that heat does help. In my opinion you are dead wrong. Heat will thin Etex to the point that it will run like water. Have you ever seen an air bubble in water? It rises to the surface where it will release. I would never use a hairdryer...there is a intake and exhaust... whatever is sucked in, will come out. That will be blown onto your fresh sticky epoxy. No way on the hairdryer. JMO Mike

  11. Air Brush Recommendations

    Keep in mind. Most $200 dollar and up airbrushes have too small of nozzles to spray acrylics. So if you are spraying acrylics, make sure the airbrush that you purchase can handle the paint to be sprayed. If you thin acrylics too much, they will lose their adhesive qualities... which arent that great to begin with. Comparing to Laquer..... laquer of course cant be sprayed inside without some kind of ventilation system. There is a huge difference between the $25 dollar airbrush and the $150.00 airbrush...jmo Mike
  12. Cumberland Purple

    Great looking bait! Reminds me alot of a AC Shiner. Cumberland...could be 7 more years before it hits Cumberland. What will happen? 650 ft and its over...
  13. Give me some Feedback!

    Dweller, Nice looking bait! Check to see if your camera has a Macro feature. If it does switch to Macro when taking pics less than 12 inches away from your subject. I think you will like the results. Mike
  14. Air Brushing

    Iwata Eclipse Nozzle sizes All Eclipse are a .5 nozzle The only one that isnt, is the gravity feed CS. Which is a .35. Go to dixieart.com....or coastairbrush.com...it is spelled out. I wouldnt go under a .35 for spraying Acrylics... you will have to thin the best of paints. Unless you like thinning... Going off memory but I think those nozzle numbers are correct. The CS gravity feed is for sure a smaller nozzle, than the siphon feed Eclipses. The high dollar Iwata's are really not designed for spraying acrylics.
  15. Removing blemishes in devcon???

    Your choice...What type of plastic bait? If it was a luckycraft I might be tempted to sand the clearcoat away and reapply foil and repaint. But for a 3-4 dollar bait, you are going to be putting alot of elbow grease in. How big is the smear and where is it at? Can you live with it. Ruined baits are part of the learning process. Can the smear be covered by anything you are spraying in the rest of the pattern? I am assuming that you would have another coat of devcon going over the finished bait. 2 coats of devcon over a plastic bait may be adding quite a bit of weight. Might be enough to change the action or kill the action.
