  1. Spraying Flake

    I have a Flakebuster dry spray gun, that I've used on several different projects, none of which were lures.....I will say that I liked for some projects and not others.....Dry spraying flake is a great idea and works ok on some level, but what I found was, I end up with alot of flake on the floor and everywhere else for that matter.....Yes, you can try to recover the flake by sweeping or catching the extra flake on a substrate of some sort, but to me it was more hassle then it was worth, so now I'm real picky on which jobs I might use it on, but for the most part is just sits on the bench. If I were doing alot of lures at a time and had some sort of self contained booth that would catch the extra flake for reuse later without causing a big clean up then I'd say it'd be worth looking into....otherwise keep doing what your doing now and save your money for another airbrush or touch-up gun or more paint....something you'll actually use....lol
  2. Spraying Flake

    Sorry for the delay in my reply Ben.....and it looks like KcDano correctly answered the question for you already....No it does not take the place of a topcoat clear....Use it to mix dry pearls,flakes,candies or marblizers into...also can be used as a sealer or barrier to prevent bleeding of colors......but since it does not use a catalyst it does require that you apply a catalysed topcoat clear over it.
  3. Spraying Flake

    Ben since your using an automotive clearcoat, you might try whats known as intercoat clear....I use the SG100 from House of Kolor....Its a clear medium thats designed to be used for spraying flakes and pearls....Its also what I mix the candy concentrates with to create my transparent colors...You mix it 2:1 with a reducer for most applications, but often something like 1:1 works better for airbrushing.....Thankfully Its not real expensive, cause I use alot of the stuff....lol.

    Thats very interesting info LIttleriver.....I know nothing about this lure....It was given to me with a bunch of old wore out cranks to practice painting on.....It had several layers of paint from previous repaints.....It might be some classic old lure style, I dunno...that'd be neat if if was....I'll fish with it just to see if it'll produce....Maybe I need to pull a mold off this before I loose it...lol

  9. Airbrush Hose Quick Disconnects

    Mark, I've been using the same quick disconnect airbrush hose for more years then I can remember and its the best money I ever spent.....I've got a couple of male connectors for every brand of airbrush I own and its a breeze to switch brush to brush.....Not having several hoses always hanging on the bench ready to tangle up, made the investment more then worth it to me....lol....I'm as tight as a tick when it comes to spendin money, but in this case I think its money well spent.
  10. Createx Wicked Paints

    Waterborne might be more accurate then waterbased, as that paint does contain a mild solvent and requires you to use their brand of reducer for optimum performance, but otherwise its a waterbased paint, although it acts like more like a urethane in the way it sprays, and even though I haven't used the product myself, I know alot of airbrushers and custom painters that do use it and have been since it before it hit the market and everyone of them swear by the stuff....Its designed to cleared over with a catalized urethane clearcoat, so I doubt that dipping in DN should not be a problem once the wicked colors are dry.

    Messing with a candy green to see what that looks like.

    I like the bronze pearl over the silver base.....just wish I'd of remember to put eyes on before I cleared it....lol

    this is an old lure that is missing the bottom hook eye....I plan to use this lure body as a pullchain for my office ceiling fan.

    I had my mind elsewhere and jumped the gun by clearcoating several lures, only to realize I hadn't painted killspots or gills, and lets don't mention that I forgot the eye's....hahaha.....guess I'll be sanding them back down and finishing them later.....Thats ok, they're just practice lures anyway.

    Candyapple red over silver with some prism flake in the final clearcoat.
