For the guys that brush on DN, do you need to turn them afterward, can you turn them on a wheel?
How long after a coat of epoxy like the BSI or D2T should I wait before I brush DN on?

Just looking to try something new(for me), any help would be great.

I dip and hang baits with DN but some guys prefer brushing it, so maybe they'll chime in. You don't want the DN to accumulate into a pool anywhere on the bait because it will tend to stay liquid and begin to bubble. Brush too much on and it will pool, even on a lure turner. A buddy of mine who brushed DN used to "sling" any extra DN off his baits before putting them on his turner. But he worked in a dirt floored garage. I'd wait a day until the epoxy is cured before applying DN. Epoxy will cure regardless but why be in a hurry?
