Hello! I am a newbe and have been looking through all the archives (great reading) I am thinking of getting into this hobby and as I do I am sure there will be a ton of questions to come. I was wondering if any of you could tell me ......When I go into my favorite musky store basically all the lures finishes look about the same to me, they look wet, and thick. Like they almost have a plastic coating on them. Do you know what this process is called? Also paint jobs look to perfect to be hand done. Do you think they are painted or do you think they use some tape or other covering and then seal it with this acrylic looking finish? Thanks for any help I will be asking more questions soon!
