I pretty new to the craft of lure making. Ive been carving wooden crankbaits for a couple of weeks but I dont know what paint to use and what primer, and what kind of clear coat to use.I kind of what to stick with acrylic paint, but if not that cool. So if some one can tell me what steps to take in the painting process that would be great.

Welcome to TU. I'd suggest using the search tool. If you can't find all of your answers, post up a thread asking. But use the search first. Search for primer, clear coat, painting, etc. you'll have more then enough to read.

Get an airbrush, it will make you have better detail and it dries very quickly!

Krylon Fusion works good for a primer. As far as clear coats there seem to be three main ones that most people on here seem to use. Devcon Two Ton epoxy, Envirotex, and Dick Nites. Do a search on any of those three and you are sure to come up with a lot of information. I personally use Devcon 2T which you can get from Wal-Mart, but I'm new too and its all a matter of preference really.
