Basscat, you make have better luck if you post your question in the wire baits forum. Not many crankbait makers use vinyl lure paint.

Basscat, are you looking for painting info for spinner baits? If you are, let me know and I can move the entire thread into the Wire Baits forum. Most of the guys in this forum have years of experience and timeless advise. But the fundamentals between wire and hard baits are pretty far apart. The general concern is to help you find the correct information to solve question.

I think 99% of crankbait painters use acrylic latex or lacquer. If you're trying the vinyl, thin it until it shoots through whichever airbrush you're using without clogging. Other paints are typically thinned to the consistency of milk or even thinner. And PLEASE use a facemask rated for harmful solvents. The aerosol nature of airbrushing guarantees you'll be breathing whatever is in that paint.
