I've been using the laquer thinner with plastic cups as my wood sealer with great success.

I have had my lures destroyed by toothy fish or bouncing them off rocks etc where the clear coat and paint were chipped off right down to the wood but the wood remained perfectly sealed.

Now onto my question. After using the dip I sand them prime my lure. I'm wondering if it would work if I added my primer to the laquer then that way the lure would be both sealed and primered?

Anyone think that might work?

ĎMr Jí I have been using yoghurt cups for a while, which is already white. I donít think it is as hard as the clear stuff (which could be a good thing) but after a few dips you get a white base coat. As for tinting propionate, if it was thinned with lacquer thinner, you should be able to tint it any color you like with an auto lacquer tint.
Just remember, clear lacquer is always the toughest, as soon as you start to add impurities (tints or matt base) the cost is durability. pete

You can add solvent based pure pigments/colorants and it will work great.
