Can anyone tell me where I can get the pearl base coat like the stuff they use on the old Bagley Balsa baits. I shoot lacquer paint if this makes a difference.

Thanks

From the look and thickness of the paint on the old baits, I would guess those were dipped. Maybe mix pearl powder with latex paint.

Old Bagley baits are the only ones I've seen with that thick pearl white paint as a undercoat. By the way I'm really just guessing here.

Createx auto air has the best pearl white imho, it's thicker than any of the other brands I've tried.
