it amazes me to when I goto Michael's and no one knows their own craft store. At Michael's, it is usually with the epoxy/decoupage/silverleaf area. I haven't been to hobby lobby in a bit, but should be in same area still.

Oh, its envirotex and in a blue box

Etex is a two part epoxy. It is a decoupage epoxy, designed for coating large areas, with some differential movement, so it's more flexible than D2T, which is a glue (thank you Downriver).

Because it's more flexible, it takes impacts with rocks better, denting instead of cracking.

I think that company also makes a UV protected formula, but I switched to Nu Lustre 55 with UV protection, and am happy.

One tip...the harder the material you make your lure from, the better the finish will hold up, since the epoxy isn't stressed as much from impacts or teeth. That's one of the reasons I like AZEK PVC decking.
