I've seen lures where they painted two coats of paint and the top coat appeared to shrink around the edges and crack making like a lightning look. Does anyone know how this is done?

If you're using acrylic paint, there is a crackle medium that you can buy at Wal-mart or most any other place that sells acrylic paints. It is applied between the two colors. As the top color dries, it will "crack".
