Hughesy...a follow up Q on sandpaper

5 posts in this topic

...from the email I sent & you replied to earlier this week about re-painting old balsa b's: Do you suggest wet sanding? Concerned about getting water into the grain by doing that. Really enjoy your "miscellaneous baits" section on the site BTW. Thanks, Dave Reeves.

Dave,

Yes I wet sand the balsa baits. Water does not penatrate balsa unless it is under water for long perionds of time. I just think the wet sanding removes the damaged paint faster and leaves a smoother surface when you are done. After sanding let the lure dry for a while and it will be fine.
