Top Coat

18 posts in this topic

You should use that one part fast drying stuff compatible with all other coatings that levels like a dream and cures to a rock hard, crystal clear waterproof and hookproof coating in 12 hours. The kind you can leave in the can on your bench indefinitely without it going bad, curing, or turning brown. You know, the one that costs $25 per quart.

I used all mine up. When you find more, let me know. :rolleyes:

Is that the one that has the magic fairy dust in it that's made by elves in the enchanted forest? B)

Not exactly sure about top coat as I've only made a few lures, but where can I get clam shell packaging?

What Top Coat should I use ?

I'm still green at the top coat stuff, but D2T has been satisfactory so far.

I am a newby when it comes to clearcoat but I heard from a reliable source that minwax poly in a rattle can it the cat's meow, my second choice would be clear nail polish. If you want I could use the search feature called the internet and find out where it is available!! :blink:

I've been spit-polishing all of mine. It is a rather involved technique that most people will want to try to shortcut, but hey, there are no shortcuts when it comes to the best baits!!!
