Blister on new bait

11 posts in this topic

Had a blister form on one of my new baits today.

First time this has happened. The bait was in a plastic

box in my truck in the sun, A blister about as big around

as a pencil eraser formed on the forward side. No other

baits were effected. Just don't understand it??

I would guess that somehow moisture has gotten in the wood, and the heat just made it surface...maybe the moisture was already in the wood, maybe it has a leak in the finish, etc. That is just my guess, which isn't much. :lol:

More than likely your white undercoat did not stick to the wood on that part of the bait. I had the same thing happen when I used sanding sealer for the wood and my latex white undercoat. I wouldn't rule out the moisture thing either. But my guess is that your undercoat didn't stick.

i think skeeter is right. undercoat didnt stick = trapt air + hotsun = expanding trapt air = blister. samething happend to me:(

The undercoat was not sprayed on the wood. It's a balsa bait

and is sealed with Devcon, then sanded and sprayed with

white undercoat.

Then my thought is that the white undercoat that you used did not stick to the Devcon sealer coat. I only use lacquer paint as an undercoat when shooting straight onto Devcon.

Have not had this problem before or since.

Had other new baits in box with this bait sitting

in sun. The funny thing is, that's it's perfectly

round. Give Devcon credit, it didnot bust.

The bait is very useable, just not saleable.

I had three baits made the same way and only one did the same thing. The others are still being used after more than a year. Maybe it was something with that one piece of wood. :?:

Just Curious, but I seal my lures with devcon, then spray acrylic white krylon over it, and sometimes the topcoat and the white chips away...what type of white primer or paint do ya'll use over the devcon?

I use Kilz and Krylon white primer, solvent based, over

the Devcon.

Maybe it was just a freak thing and you will never know. Not being around long enough to know, I will take a wild guess. Moisture in the Airbrush or compressor or maybe even a little solvent from when you cleaned your brush. Just a thought since you said it was perfectly round.
