Buck, I can only reference crankbaits and spoons, for which I use Venture Brite-Bak adhesive foil.

One source: http://www.tracysworkshop.com/p-4342-britebak-silver-tape.aspx

The Brite-bak foil is strong but thin and has good adhesive. I smooth it on and cover it with a coat of epoxy or Dick Nite moisture cured polyurethane.

I use JT some also, not easy to cover curves without some wrinkles. Works good on large areas, although some question in my mind the adhesive is 100% water proof after drying.

JMHO, it 100% easier to use foil with waterproof adhesive backing. Cut it out, smooth it on .... done. The Brite-bak is considerably thinner than Witch Tape foil sold by fishing supply houses to add to spoons and it conforms to crevices, etc, better. I like to clearcoat it after application to guarantee none of the edges come up. The downside is it comes in a limited array of colors. I only use the silver/chrome Brite-bak and think their gold foil is too brassy to pass for gold. I shoot silver with a light spray of transparent yellow when I want gold foil effect.

Great idea for the gold foil effect. I'm going to try that.

After all, you were right on about the Venture Foil, so how far wrong can I go? ;):worship:

You can try this as a substitute to foil, for that shiny coat. Fast, easy and is bullet proof.
