    Painting Hard Plastic Musky Baits

    Hey guys, So I have this new glider that guys are going nuts for and ive switched to plastic and its pretty much ready to be produced in quantity. Unlike my previous models that were wood. I opted to go hard plastic so I can produce more to sell. My only problem is that painting is seriously kicking my butt. Im not quite sure what the issue is. I use plastic resin from a company called fabricast 50 from specialty resins. Now the main problem im assuming is the bonding. But it only really occurs on the back and belly of the bait. So thats no good when it comes to epoxying. It's almost like something is coming through the bait which I thought was some sort of contamination. But I use wax and grease remover prior to priming. Is it the spray bomb primer? Should I use a adhesive spray instead?

    Glide Bait Talk

    So we have great talks and and threads going hear about properly weighting crank baits which usually means something with a lip that dives even if its very little... but what about properly weighting glide baits? Now I am guessing that not allot of people fish with them and if you don't you are missing out because I have had some experience now with some and believe them to be a very great lure especially in the fall which is now coming on strong in the northern part of north america anyway... and the thing I don't see about them or ever talked about is size. I've used plenty of musky sized ones now because that is what's made the most but really how about some bass/ northern size ones that fall in the 3-4 inch range or less all the predatory species in North America would destroy these things in the fall feeding... I've just recently purchased some 1/4 thick aspen wood and some balsa of same size and am going to try my hand at making some smaller and larger gliders and would love to hear some input on everyone's thoughts.

    ABT Glide Bait I foiled and painted. I used "cheap" kitchen type foil attached with Solarez UV cure resin using MEKP for curing agent. This bait has a distinctive and fairly deep scale pattern in the mold. All Createx paints. Used opaque white to cover the seams, then transparent paints for body and back. Opaque black for spots and pearlized white for belly. Seems the overspray of the white covered the foil more than I wanted but it comes through in outside light better. One of my first attempts with foil. Barry

    ABT Glide Bait I foiled and painted. This bait has a deep scale pattern in the mold. I applied imitation silver leaf to this bait to compare to the kitchen foil type of my other bait. Attached the leaf to the bait with D2T pressing down with breath and cotton ball. Scrubbed it off with DA a couple times before I got an acceptable job this being one of my first attempts at this procedure. Wanting the silver sides of the natural trout effect I was careful not to get too much transparent white on the sides. Seams much easier to hide due the leaf being very thin base coated edges opaque white to hide color transition. Body paints transparent Createx colors then opaque black for spots and pearlized white for belly. Liked the looks of this one better than the one I foiled with kitchen type foil. Came out with a crushed silver look made for a nice looking silver sided trout. The other bait looked more like I had applied chromed type paints Barry
