Someone a while back posted a how-to on turning cheap-o walmart jerkbaits into quality baits, anyway I want to combine that with foiling to really have a nice product when I'm done.
What my question is... can I seal in the foiling and tissue w/either epoxy or clear nail polish? And also, has anyone tried adding the tissue part of a foiling technique to a bait that already has a foil look on it. I really want to create a bait that looks like a smelt to target the smallies up here in upstate ny.
I don't make a lot of hard baits, so buying a 1/2 gallon of etex seems real expensive, and devcon too, so if I could get away with stealing the old ladies nail polish and sealing a plastic bait up I'd be pumped.
