    Different prices and I usually get them at Allreds taxidermy
  2. I make baits straight from scratch, two sided foam baits molded together, made by hand, that is custom to me. The paint job I put on them is straight old school nothing fancy. The paint means nothing it's all in the vibration of the lure.

    I've tried using createx paint for my crankbaits and I'm just not liking it at all. Heat set, takes to long to dry, too many coats to get the brightness I want. I'm thinking seriously about going back to taxidermy lacquers. Dries on the spot, color that just pops without multiple coats. The only bad is the fumes, but I have a stove hood in front of a window. I'm just still trying to decide what I want to do.

    Is Minwax polycrylic a good clearcoat to use on crankbaits? I've used KBS but I do not like the storage problems. And I done ev6you can do to keep it from setting up. Have been using tap the can method but I dont like brushing it on. I want something where I can dip and hang.
  5. Yes I did, and also the seal was on the paint as well
  6. Why is my Opaque black not shooting real dark? Also it's running some and I haven't thinned it at all.
  7. How many do you usually coat at a time before you ever start cleaning your brush?
  8. Does anyone know of the best NON MCU clear coat. Is MCU even best to use anyway? I mean I'm just trying to get some ideas on what I should be using. I'm thinking seriously about just using tap the can method and just dispense out little at a time and brush it on then hang them up to dry. But how do you get the stuff out of a brush once it starts setting up?
  9. That's what I use is Mason jars. Also I dip quick to ensure that it's not open long.
  10. I would use it and right before I sealed it back up I would barely lift lid spray it in there and then seal it.
  11. You talking about after you use it?
  12. I've tried the bloxygen stuff KBS makes with no luck. I sprayed in in there then immediately closed it off go back and open it and its skimmed over. I just can't use it up fast enough before it starts hardening up.
  13. I use Diamond clear to clear coat my baits. I have to dip them due to the quantities I make. I have a hell of a time keeping it from setting up in my jars and I line the tops with zip lock bags before screwing the top on. If I go to the tap the can method how is that gonna work when I'm dipping my baits? I have to have a good bit to dip into. Any suggestions?
  14. What kind of mold putty or clay should I use to make my silicone molds?
  15. Also what kind of rubber is that you using
