I recently applied foil to a balsa bait for the first time. The results were good, however when I tried to paint the back with the enamel i alkways use it seems to not want to stick. Is this a matter of thinning paint too much or is enamel not usable over foil?

You need to clear coat the bait before painting. This will help hide the seams and give a surface for the paint to stick to. Also if you mess up painting just wipe it down and start over.
