Short answer, you don't. I dip mine so the nose of the bait is covered and that leaves a short section of the lip covered too. If we're talking about the moisture cured solvent based version of DN, it has good adhesion on Lexan or other lip materials and is very clear so that's not really much of a problem. In fact, I've dipped repaints with scratched up lips fully into DN to make the lips transparent again, and it works very well. I haven't used the water borne version of DN on crankbaits so can't comment on its adhesion to lip materials like Lexan.

I don't use D/N, but I have found if you paint and then toppcoat your bait and let it dry you can put your lip in last and you won't get any thing on the lip. And if you have a big enough jar it won't matter when you dip it. I have done it both ways and either is fine. I buy my sealers, build coats and topcoats buy the gallon so it works both ways for me. PM me if you have any questions.
