  1. Hey guys I have been having trouble with my 30 min. Envirotex lite brush on epoxy. I put the lures on my bbq rotisserie motor lure turner for about 2 hours and they are still tacky after that. I have the lure turner inside my house where it is 68 degrees.
  2. heat transfer foil..pdf I am still new at this process. But I have had some good results. Hopefully this will provide a foundation which we can build on. Please let me know what you think. If you think of something new, please keep me posted .

    Paraffin Wax Baits

    Hey community, I saw a guy fishing in video with some home made wax lures, I am assuming paraffin. Well any way has someone ever tried that. I want to know if it will be durable with a coating of epoxy, when it is built like a wooden body lure with wires in the inside. The way it would work I am assuming is with wires internally built that take all the fish's tugging so the wax body does not break. If you have tried this before can you tell me your experience with it. Thank you in advance. (Plastisol Formula will be posted later today.)

    Clear coating in cold temperatures?

    I've recently started painting crankbaits and use BSI as a top coat. BSI cures at temps over 70 degF, however, in the winter my basement gets cold. Temps are usually in the upper 50s/low 60s. I'm thinking of constructing a heater with halogen lights, but I'm worried about the fire hazard. Is there an alternative clear coat that I could use that is just as durable as BSI, but has a wider range of temps? I've looked at KBS but I'm concerned about the fumes, and would like brush it on if possible. What other choices do I have.
  23. Ok I have been trying to make my own baits for a while and i finalyl got a few that work good finally.But i still have a problem that just keeps happening. The etex epoxy keeps covering my eyes that the hooks hang on and the line tie in my bait. then if i try to chisel etc it off it cranks sometimes and the bait kinda looks bad sometimes from it. I love the look the tex gives but really need some help on cpould be doing wrong. I have a spinner and everything. Could I be applying it to thick or? Maybe ishould let it sit some after mixing to let it thicken? any help would be appreciated. I use scotch tape to protect the diving bill would love a better way to do that as well thanks guys in advance

    Glitter Stripe On Plastic Lures

    I searched this forum for info on glitter applied to lures and found a lot of good information so this topic may be covered elsewhere (just can find it), but here goes. I have a guy who wants a shiny stripe painted along the lateral lines on some of his lures. I figured on just using iridescent paint to make the stripe. Turns out he wants a glitter stripe using "rainbow" colored glitter over turquoise paint. I've use glitter on a few baits but I don't use it a lot and never for detail stuff like a stripe. I'm thinking of using a stencil for the stripe then removing the stencil before the stripe dries to avoid a sharp edge. Not sure about this at all! I'm guessing someone on TU knows how to put a glitter stripe on and make it look great. I could use a little tutoring on glitter products to use, how to apply them, etc. Hope someone has the time to discuss this. I want to do this right as I like the guy, he's an old-timer who has shown me a lot of good "honeyholes" and offered up a lot of fishing wisdom. Appreciate any help offered.
