So my order for some KBS clear coat came in today, I had to leave the 2 ton epoxy it was just too messy for me and time consuming (THATS JUST ME) but my question here is DO I SINGLE COAT MY LURES OR DOUBLE? and I will say i dunked about 25 crank baits I made and it took me only about 5 minutes total I LOVE HOW FAST I CAN COAT MY LURES NOW! also I barely used any clear coat so spending $50 on a quart of KBS will go a LOOOOONNNGGG WAAAAYYY! but I'm a newbie so will see. So yeah so far I've only dunked them once so should that be enough or should I do a second coat?? THANK YOU in advance!
I've made the switch to KBS last fall and production time really has increased for me. I'm getting the the point where I'd consider myself a high-volume painter and every step counts when trying to get baits to customers, especially the ones that wait til the last minute to order. Although KBS cures quickly and is virtually dummy-proof, I can still see where some steps can me eliminated that are causing time delays. For instance, I have to clean the hook hangers after each coat so it doesn't build up enough to peel paint. I think spraying kbs would help eliminate that and speed up my production. So my question is, who is spraying KBS and what are you using for a ratio? I figure I'll just get an small volume HVLP detail airbrush and get things started. Any help would be appreciated.
