Hi, I was wondering when you seal a raw wood lure blank with D2T if it soaks into the wood. I have used etex and it really soaked into the wood. It didn't cover any flaws or the grain of the wood. It also takes awhile to dry. I was looking for something that would level off nice and cover the wood grain or any flaws. Does D2T work well? I would assume I could sand D2T and when it dries paint my lure? Thank you for any info.

I use D2T as a sealer quite often. Mix it up then mix in a few drops of denatured alcohol, to whatever consistency you like to brush. Sand with 400 grit when cured to remove gloss and any rough end grain raised by the alcohol. Repeat if you had to sand into raw wood anywhere. It makes for a very smooth, durable, chemically inert undercoating. D2T can be sanded after curing 8-10 hours at room temperature, so it goes faster than Etex in that application.
