    Preserving carving details

    I've heated under grill till they felt fairly warm but not what you would call hot. I personally don't thin ,as I've found it gets pretty thin when applying to the warm blank. Wait 5 mins after removing lure from heat before applying. ..

    You could do away with spar urethane and seal by heating lure before applying e-tex ,using just enough to soak in. Heating the wood makes it suck the e-tex in as it cools....

    Bonepile, if you really have to handle lure, do what mark suggested. If you actually had oily hands when you handled your lures, then they may well have had it. If your paint is bone dry and preferably heat set, it is possible to clean very gently with luke warm water and a small amount of washing up liquid - literally a few very gentle wipes or you risk lifting paint. .glider

    Hopefully you'll get to the bottom of it bonepile, for sure touching the lure will create fish eyes, with oily hands its guaranteed.....glider

    Hard to say stickleback, it's something ive always done on my top waters. I regularly fish them with static pauses and seemed common sense to put the eye's where they can be seen. I can say they are effective.....glider

    Hey ddl, I get mine off ebay in u.k , you should have no problem getting it though - do a search for 'ultra fine nail glitter ' I buy it in 100 gram bags. ...

    Mark, I've used a similar method-clear acrylic through airbrush over glitter with decent results . Bonepile, hope that's your problem solved. In my case it only happens with one glitter, and like I say I catch it no problem with next coat. I'm surprised vallejo gloss caused it, was it 100 percent cured ? P.s you can E-tex over foil fine...glider
