Wood sealers can have 2 functions. First, you can use them to harden the wood and make it waterproof and more durable. Second, you can use them to prevent the grain from raising when you hit the wood with water based acrylic paints. I use several coatings; 30 minute epoxy like Devcon Two Ton diluted 50/50 with denatured alcohol, propionate pellets dissolved in acetone, or straight polyurethane varnish. There are other products including sanding sealers, super glue, wood hardeners, etc that guys use. It's a player's choice.

I had bought some sanding sealer from Michael's the other day. It is pretty easy stuff to use. Spray your lure, wait maybe 15 minutes, then sand it. I ws amazed how smooth it got really. It started to have a sheen to it, it was that smooth. Oh, and the water just bounces off it. Great for testing your lure and adjusting ballast in a timely manner.
