I'm having problem finding product like devcon 2 ton or sanding sealer out here.
Can somebody give me the name and brand of many sanding sealer, paint, and top coat this way i will be able to ask for the right product when i go to the store.
I went to the exotic wood store, they have a lot of sanding sealer but no one is waterproof and the guy can't help me...
So if you have any products name,brand,store i can find them in canada (quebec) let me know
If it's more simple to order online and i got beter price give me some web site thx a lot.

What part of PQ are you in? Might help to narrow it down.
Do you have a Lee Valley close by?
I get my clear coat from Rona, might be a good place to start.

I,ve had a hard time finding stuff here as well [ontario] especially devcon 2. Finally found createx paint at michaels crafts store (didn,t know we had them in canada until a few weeks ago) it costs quite abit more than in the states i paid 5.99/2oz. luremaking.com sells a 2part epoxy for clear coating they,re own brand i think and macphersoncrafts.com sells envirotex/polymer epoxy. All these are in ontario so that might not help but if they are here chances are you can find them in quebec as well or at least have them shipped from here. Good Luck

It seems like there was a simular thread a few months ago, may have been centered around postage rates and getting stuff through customs... Does anyone remember if there was simular information in that thread.
Woodie, I think you posted in that one too. Does anyone remember the thread I thinking about?

getting articles thru customs is a pain. the best way thru, is mail its slow but they will only charge the g.s.t and a 5 dollar fee. if you ship a couriers as fed -ex. or u.p.s you will be hammered by brokerage fees. they are a complete rip-off.. ordering flammables as paints and thinners theres also another shipping cost for hazardous items..

I'm from montreal anywhere near this town is ok , don't mind driving 1 hour to get to it

Dumb Yank question.
Isn't Montreal Detroit adjacent?
I mean, can't you just drive across the border and buy what you need? Works the other way for prescription drugs.

Thx to all for the information
About the Propionate does this stuff work great as a sealer for musky lure.....?
Can i apply water base paint over that stuff?
And finaly can i use this stuf as final coat like 3-4 coat to pretect my lure?

Propionate will do a great job of sealing a bait for Musky fishing. Just a few more dips than would be used for bass bait and it will hold up as good as any of the other sealers if not better. Water-based paints will work great over this. After it is sealed, prep it the same way you would prep a plastic bait before painting. Then paint away.
I don't recommend propionate as a topcoat on water-based paints. As others have found out, solvent based paints and topcoats work best under water-based and not over them. If you were to want to use propionate as a topcoat, it would work good over lacquer paint if you shoot it with one or two coats of a lacquer clearcoat then dip it.

If you fish Musky or Pike you´ll need more than a few dips in propionate if you are gonna use some simple topcoat ,otherwise you´ll need epoxy or something like it.
If you look at Nils-Master lures & wooden Rapalas you´ll see that they dont have a topcoat they only use propionate for sealer&basecoat & it´s quite more than a few dips . There´s no problem to use Propionate as topcoat over waterbased paints
as long as you heatset the paint .
How do i know?
Well i use the same stuff they do & i´ve been doing so for over 8 years or more

Palmetto If you have the right shore (hardness) propionate will work great for a topcoat. If you are having issues maybe someone sent you improper product?

Its not the Shore or Rockwell Hardness that is incompatible. It is the Acetone or Virgin Lacquer Thinner that causes problems with the other products.
If a particular paint that some one is using can stand a dip into straight Acetone, then there would not be any compatibility problems. I just don't recommend using it as a topcoat over water-based paints because some will fail and destroy their hard work. Some people have already found this out.
