to hold my scale netting on my lures tight i found that regular small binder clips you can pick up from the office suppy or school supply section at wallmart do the trick perfect..............................

I agree with you. Those clips are what I use all the time. If you get a scale material that the clips don't want to hold decent, just put a small piece of self stick velcro on the inside of the binder clip. I think it works just awesome. Ken Schmitz

On lures that seem bent on making problems with getting the netting exactly where I need it, I sometimes dispense with the clips and simply hold the lure and netting in place with a disposable-gloved hand.

If you want to do just one side at a time you can use some Spray Mount Artist's Adhesive. Just a light spray on one side of the scale material and let it dry a little. Then you can lay the scale material right on the lure. Just a light touch will make it stick. Spray the scales on and by the time you put the air brush down you can pull the material off. If you want to make sure the paint is dry just hit it with the hair dryer for just a second and then pull the material off and put it on the other side using the same side down without having to spray any more adhesive. Then you can spray the solid color down the back. I have sprayed as many as 5 lures without having to put any more adhesive on the material. Just the way I was taught.
