Whats the best way to "seal the wood"

8 posts in this topic

don't know about the best method but several methods include using devcon 2 ton, using bullseye 123, and there even one where you use styrofoam cups and paint thinner to make a protective coating.

Devcon 2 ton works for me. Especially if you are using balsa.

Here is a picture of one I just sealed.

Tally, I thought of that but didn't know if it was ok to do it that way.

So, you just carve your bait, top coat it, paint it, and then top coat again?

Thanks,

Terry

If your bait is not balsa you don't need to use Devcon.

Devcon is really hard to sand down compared to

polyurthane, polyacrylic or Bulleyes shellac.

There is a lot of guys who know more about this than me. Coley just gave you some more ideas. Which ever you do, it is very important to sand // scuff it up before you start painting. The bait you saw has balsa in it so I used Devcon.

Coley has it. I've been using Minwax Polycrylic; lightly sand smooth the raised grain with some fine after the first coat, recoat until glass smooth. Scuff and you're ready for base coat.

:D hey terry, it's jeff from colliers wv. i use a sanding-sealer that is used on wood doors or whatever. i use either minn wax or sherwin williams brand but make sure you don't get the laquer sealer it has a bad effect on some paints i've tried. also talked to skeeter two weekends ago when i went to north carolina to check on my house there and i think he was having a problem with the laquer also(skeeter is a very smart man concering making crankbaits and using devcon as a top coat) so give it a try.
