Paint Smearing On Plastic Bodies.

2 posts in this topic

I just started painting baits this week. I am stripping down old bodies with sandpaper. I then am spraying with spray cans.

I am an artist so the patterns I have little problem with. I did a couple on old Poe's wood bodies , they dried nicely and don't smear when i attempt to do so with my thumb. I painted two plastic baits, the patterns came out nice, but then smeared when I rubbed my thumb on them. Am I not permitting enough time to permit them to dry, or do I have to use a primer?

Most of us use watercolor paints. You have to clear coat them and let it harden before you try to mess up the paint. Paint alone on the body will always smear if you press hard and push on it.
