I am a total newb looking for info on how you guys get some of the awesome glitter topcoats on your baits. What type of glitter and clear coat are you using?

I use rattle can spray glitter from Michael's, and Envirotex Lite for clear coat.
I can paint a bait, spray on the glitter, and clear it immediately. I just have to dry between coats with a hair dryer.

Perfect works like a charm, couldn't find Enviro @ Michael's but gold glitter looks great! Thanks

I found some silver glitter that is in a clear solvent base at the hobby shop. I mix this right in with my epoxy then just clear and glitter in one step. Very convenient and I think that it looks pretty good too.

Use an ultra fine glitter and mix it in your clear coat (Envirotex or Two ton epoxy). Do not add a lot of glitter to the clear coat as it can cause a rough finish. A little glitter will go a long way. This is similar to the way Norman does their Gel Coat on their lures.
You can find the ultra fine glitter in any hobby shop or Wal-Mart. I use the glitter from Hobby Lobby. Several of the glitters are color changing so just experiment with the glitters over the various paint colors.
