Also should mention certain geometries delaminate because the polymer seeks the lowest energy configuration and contracts on itself.

I have never tried propionate but in my experience the biggest factor affecting the ability to dissolve is the average molecular weight of the polymer and they are not all the same from batch to batch or mfg to mfg.

I just had another idea for sealing wood, how about wood glue diluted with a little water? I have used wood glue as a sealer before and have been happy with the low toxicity, fast cure time, and ease of availability.

In general I would say wood glue is not waterproof but does resist water for a little while when cured. Not a problem if only used as a wood sealer assuming you use a water proof topcoat.

I found some VIRGINS! ORiely's has them all hidden!
now to see if its as good as everyone says! ;D
first batch is gradually becoming more solution!
just a tip for other prop useres. I lay aluminum foil underneath my lures to catch the excess prop. Keep your alluminum smooth and it will peal off after it drys, ready to be used again.
