  1. Question for those who have used these inks in their painting .... I read when these are used it was stated that Pledge Floor Care was sprayed on the bait to seal the inks. Is this step necessary? Will clear coating with D2 or KBS mess with the inks if you skip the Pledge step?

    Ideas on painting this pattern or similar

    Welcome to the board! You can learn A LOT here. From what I can see from the pic looks like you can start with a holographic blank. To see what I'm talking about look at the holo blanks at Predator Bass Baits ... http://www.predatorbassbaits.com/id69.html Can you post a bigger picture so its easier to see?

    No More Masking Tape On Lip!

    Have you tried this yet with square bills? Tried it on square bill with no luck.

    Using masking tape

    Blue Painter's tape. I get mine at Wal-Mart or Lowe's. Low tack and works great. Never had a problem with.

    How long do you leave lures rotating?

    I've never used etex before so I don't have any experience on how long to leave them on the drying wheel. I use Devcon 2 epoxy (going to try Bob Smith epoxy next) and usually leave my baits on the drying wheel between 4-5 hours. I than turn the drying wheel off and leave them on the wheel overnight to continue to fully harden overnight.

    No More Masking Tape On Lip!

    Do you have any seeping of paint under the tubing where you trimmed lip where it joins the body?

    KBS clear coat

    How about a jar with metal latch and seal(see pic). You can get these cheap at Hobby Lobby / Michael's. Saw someone in a video using this type of jar to hold their clear coat and mentioned they haven't had any problems. They place some saran wrap over the opening before closing.

    KBS Brushing Question

    Been considering trying KBS and moving from Devcon 2 Epoxy. Been reading here and online about KBS Diamond Coating and came across some info on KBS site that KBS Diamond Coating can be brushed on. Wondering if anyone brushes instead of dipping or spraying? For those who dip how do you keep the coating from pooling in the hook hangers while its hang drying? Wondering how much gathers at bottom of bait while hanging. Thanks.
  10. Does anyone know how you go about painting this pattern? I'm assuming its done using either/both a stencil or netting. Thanks.
  11. Was wondering if anyone here uses one these AB to paint. Iwata Pistol Trigger or the Iwata Mini. How do they compare to the convential dual action ABs?

    Need Help Indentifying This Rebel

    I got some better close up pics of the bill. Still can't make out what it says. My friend said he bought it a Bass Pro in the last couple of years. He said he thought it was a Rebel Mini R.

    Need Help Indentifying This Rebel

    I don't have the actual lure in hand. The pics I posted are the pics that were sent to me. All I can tell from the pic is the the lip has "Rebel (?) R" on it. The Rebel and the R are visible...the word before the R is not very readable in pic. The 2nd pic shows the lip.
  14. Which Rebel R lure is this? Been ask to find some and paint for a person. Thanks.
