Wood Sealer

3 posts in this topic

Hi all question what is the ratio of plastic cups to ounces of lacquer thinner for making a sealer for wood lures? I would like to know what size cups you would use big, small, clear, or white and so on. Thanks for any help.

I used a 24oz. Pickle jar. Five cut up 16oz. Solo cups. The kind of clear ones. Not white not crystal clear. That ratio works good. Its a little thin but its good because It coats evenly. I dip balsa baits about 8-10 times then give it a light scuff with some 400 grit. Paint then fish. :)

I just read a post from late 2003 or early 2004 that has that answer. It said...not my experience cause I've never done it, just repeating info. here. They said 10 plastic cups to 6oz. of lacquer thinner. It did not specify the size of cup to use, just said 10. They said to add enough cups to the thinner or thinner to the cups to get a consistency of thinned paint, and to use white cups, or plastic wear, white. the colored stuff didn't work as well for a sealer. and to dip it 2 or 3 times.
