Problem solved I used a 2 part epoxy to plug the leak. It wont affect me taking the brush off the hose or anything. By hoodady how do you thin your testors and pactra. I have acrylic and enamel.

Well I spayed my first lure. I have about 20 old salmon spoons so I sanded the old pain off of one. I used a createx base coat wich ran smooth at about 35 psi. Then I painted over it with C tex chartruse wich splatterd a little at 35 psi. Then I got a fish net stocking and painted over it with testors acrylic simi gloss black at the same psi. I didnt thin any of the paints they all ran good except the yellow splatterd a little. All in all everything went good. Thx to everyone with the tips.

You can thin acrylics with water or Windex.adding a very small MEASURED amount a little at a time until its thinned.Enamels: use a media specifically made by that company.You could use a number of different thinners but I prefer the ones sold for that specific product.JMO With spoons I would probably use an automotive sanding primer with enamel paints and 1 thin coat of E-tex just to protect the paint somewhat.With toothy critters and metal spoons the paint wont last forever anyway.
