I airbrush blade(shad) lures with Createx then dip them in clear finish polyurethane. Is there something else I could use in place of the poly????

If your poly is working OK for you, why not stick with it? I use Dick Nite moisture cured polyurethane on blade baits and spoons and it works great. Very clear, tough and glossy. If you're looking for a tougher clearcoat, it might be worth investigating.

enviro-tex might work pretty well for those too. However, you would have to have a lure turner and it would take a day to dry. On the plus side, you'd have a tough, perfectly smooth finish. Propionate pellets might not be a bad gamble. It drys extremely fast in comparison to all other epoxies.:twocents:
