Ok, I am painting lead lures. I have used the vinyl paints , but dipped them. I have an airbrush now. I have read that airbrushing this stuff is tuff. I use a base coat of white, then then color and then the clear. I use the spray vinyl in a can for some colors, but it is 10.00 bucks a can. I would like to get a little more detail. Can I use the water base white for a base coat, and what type of clear can I use in the air brush. Now these are not fancy crank baits or anything. any help would be great. Thanks

Powder painting lead baits is fast and easy.
Accent colours can be done over the white with air brush.
Cure this than clear coat.
Works in most cases.
Hope this helps.

I also paint my spinnerbaits with an airbrush.I use just plain old Createx acrylics and clear coat with a 2-part resin.Make sure the clear has UV protectants or they will yellow on you.I have also tried clearing w/2 part epoxy (thinned).I found out that for me the longer setting time works best for it not to yellow .....................Good Luck
