Paint Help

4 posts in this topic

Did not get an answer on the soft plastics forum but this bait is a cross over.

Paul Brown's Corky type bait is a killer bait on the Texas coast for this time of year. They are not for sale at this time as they were bought out and will be available in a month or two.

I need to repaint a couple of these baits if possible and need to know what type of paint can you use to paint these baits.

I plan to turn a couple of my off colors to a white or pearl, ch, orange for a big trip in two weeks.

I had a BAD a-- whipping last weekend for not having this in my box.

Attached a px of the baits. I have the pink but need the other and have some odd colors if I can get the paints.

Any help appreciated.

Jim

If you're looking for a "quick and dirty" solution, not sure you'll get one. The predominant way hardbait builders do it is with an airbrush and water based airbrush paint, protected with either an epoxy or moisture cured polyurethane topcoat. If you lack the equipment to do that, your best bet is to use aerosol cans. Shoot thin coats of white paint until you have hidden the old colors, then shoot the new colors, then shoot a topcoat of exterior polyurethane clearcoat. I strongly suggest you stick to one type/brand of paint because if you mix them, you are likely to find one coating will cause another to bubble or wrinkle when used together.

NOT worried about hard baits as I do not make but do repaint a lot of my existing top water baits.

If you have the type of paint I have one of the real cheap guns that is too coarse for fine work but great to put a stripe or such on a bait.
