  1. 1 - Iwata Eclipse HP-CS air brush 1 - Master G78 media blaster 2 - Master G22 air brush (1 the tip is broke) 1 - TC-20T air compressor Tons of lure blanks, templates, supplies, and paint. This setup has everything you need to start painting lures. Also have a jar of KBS clear coat. It’s old though.
  2. Mine was that way also. Seems to be fine. I have dipped a hand full of lures with no issues.
  3. Soda blasting is working the best for me. What I also found is this stuff called Klean Strip Easy Liquid Sander. This has worked pretty good to just rough up the outer layer enough to have the base coat stick.
  4. Thanks. I will need to look into the soda blasting to see if it is economical for me.
  5. If you haven't sealed, I would just wash it off and start over.

    Strip paint

    How are you all stripping the top coat and paint from lures to repaint them? Or are you just painting over? I have used sand paper and sand blasting. I just read online someone using 99% Isopropyl Alcohol work pretty well.
  7. Thanks for all the insight. Really my hooks are bending out and I was looking into making them myself. That is what started this whole process. I just cant see paying $9 for two hooks.
  8. Hey BobP - I am just going down the path of trying to make size 6 feather treble hooks. Like these - https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Gamakatsu_Black_Feathered_Treble_Hook_2pk/descpage-GFT.html What type of feathers are you using? I keep hearing use chicken feathers. I am burning through hooks and it aint even full on top water season yet.
  9. Thanks for the input. Yeah, I did read some where about a black base coat. I did get a great affect though.
  10. Perfect. Thank you! That’s for the instructions also. I never did read them on the can. Just ripped the lid off and then can went into the trash. Haha
  11. Thanks and interesting. I have been noticing my baits that have been curing longer are harder. Weeks as in 2 or more? What is your depending? Thanks!
  12. I just used Spaztix chrome, color shift and then normal painting over top. Sealed with one coat of KBS on a popper. Took it out this morning, beside crushing them, I already had paint chips. How many coats of KBS do you all use?
  13. This seems like a good method to me. I might have to give this one a whirl. Thanks
  14. Great! Thanks for the tips. What I mainly work with is swim baits with 3 or more joints. I think I will just need to brush on KBS.
