So my order for some KBS clear coat came in today, I had to leave the 2 ton epoxy it was just too messy for me and time consuming (THATS JUST ME) but my question here is DO I SINGLE COAT MY LURES OR DOUBLE? and I will say i dunked about 25 crank baits I made and it took me only about 5 minutes total I LOVE HOW FAST I CAN COAT MY LURES NOW! also I barely used any clear coat so spending $50 on a quart of KBS will go a LOOOOONNNGGG WAAAAYYY! but I'm a newbie so will see. So yeah so far I've only dunked them once so should that be enough or should I do a second coat?? THANK YOU in advance!

When I use it, I dip, let the excess drip off and then dip again.  So usually just two coats, but you can do this as many times as you want to get the desired result.

Definitely 2 coats at least. The directions say wait until you can touch it without leaving a finger print, but I usually wait over night until I recoat. I have never had a problem . Recoating to soon may cause bubbling from too thick of a coat. Apparently if all of the gases have not cured out of the first coat they form bubbles in the second coat.

My wife cannot take the smell, so it is off of my list of tools now.  But, IMHO the above responses are correct.

I found that one would work for my trout lures, but I usually ended up doing two.  I found my Pike lure required 3 or more, but looked awesome after just two.

Check out the search feature for storage issues so you don't loose all of that
