Ive used the search forums to try to help and i cant find my answer! Im having problems getting my primer coat to stick to my lure. I used Armor all wood sealer and i used krylon spray for primer. ive tried roughing it up with 2 diff grits of sand paper(220,100) i thought i had it with the 100 but when i went to paint it just ate away and the primer!:nono::cry: ill be going off to the store tomarrow morning so any help/idea would be great!

I have no experience with that brand of sealer, so I can't comment on how it works.
I use Minnwax poly acrylic to seal my baits, and either Krylon or Createx to prime them, depending on if it's warm and dry enough to open the overhead garage door.
Maybe you should switch to another sealer and see if you get better results. Or maybe it needs to set/dry better before you prime it.
Let us know how you solve it.
