Well, I am just getting started in custom crankbaits. Right now am just planning on painting some PLASTIC prebuilt crankbait bodies from Jann's.
So far, I scuffed a few old and unusable cranks with 220 grit to start. This is followed by a couple of coats Krylon White Primer spray for a start and let dry overnight. Next is Createx Airbrush ready paints. My overall body is 9 parts Fl. Orange with 1 part Med Red for a "orange caution cone" color (wife's name for it - but accurate!) For the back, an even mix of 10 parts Forest Green and Light Brown with 1 part dark gray for an DARK watermelon color.
Now the problem! I let the crank sit overnight and attempted to use Clear Lacquer with some gold and red fine glitter as a dip and ... well disappointment was the name of the day.
I am looking for a clear coat to put over my paint so that I can fish with these crankbaits! I would like to keep it simple as I do not have aturner, and would like to use a dip method with hang dry. I am not picky though, I want to fish these! HELP!!!!!
Also, what is a good way yo get the glitter on to the crankbait? My idea of using it in the dip for an even coating didn't work (could it be the lacquer problem as well?)
Thanks for the help all!!!
