Hey guys, what do you guys use to seal your wood? Do you just use an ordinary primer if you are one a budget?

Buy a double syringe of Devcon Two Ton epoxy at Walmart for $2. Mix some up and then thin it with denatured alcohol (up to 50/50). The thinner allows the epoxy to soak into the wood. Sand off the gloss of the epoxy after it cures for 24 hrs and you're ready to paint. After you paint the lure, brush on some unthinned Devcon as your durable clearcoat. Put 2 bent wire hooks on the nose and tail of the bait and reverse the up/down position every few minutes for the first half hour. Voila. And pretty cheap.

where do you find denatured alcohol? I've never heard of it before?
