My guess is that your aetone( a slovent) is not compatible with your "transparent" whatever that is lure. Maybe somebody in the Had Bait section may be of more help that fly tiers who hang here.

Good luck.

The seal coat is soft enough that it doesn't chip on rocks etc. I tried a powder topcoat and it turned into a milky looking coating. I am using this over powder paint. Good luck on the water
