Hairs And "boogers" In Paint...

4 posts in this topic

What do you guys do to help prevent hairs and other little annoyances sticking to your bait as you're painting? If you miss one and let the paint set up, what is the best way to get it out without too much harm to the paint? I usually don't see them until I heatset and they don't come off very easily :(

i usually try to eliminate them from the area before i paint first, which is a challenge with my yellow lab. I normally try to limit her access to my paint room to begin with but then i also do a quick sweep off of the desk i paint on. I also paint in disposable gloves. To me the best way to get them out of the paint is prevent it to begin with. Once they are in even if the paint is wet I normally have to tweezer them out and then nearly start over on painting to smooth it back out.

I paint in my garage, with the big door open and a box fan at the back blowing out.  It's cold, but I don't have to worry about stuff sticking to my paint, even though my garage is full of sawdust and sanding dust.

I usually try to do stuff on an "every other day" kind of thing.  I do more woodworking projects than just lures.  So I try to cut/saw/sand/shape stuff on one day, quit, vacuum or clean up, and let all the dust settle overnight. Then do all my painting/airbrushing/staining/clearcoating/polyurethane brushing the next day.  Been working pretty well for me. One way to do it.
