Help After The Sealing Process

I would like to change and modify a process in my painting steps. I strip, paint and modify my baits. My process.
1) two dips of a water base sanding sealer
2) one coat of devon
3) paint one coat of lacquer white for my base
4) paint the color pattern
5) clear coat with the best ---DEVCON----
I would like to change and modify two steps into one.
Steps 2 and 3 I would like to combine. I would like to use a primer I can dip over the water base sanding sealer. And the primer must be white so I can use it as my base. The biggest problem is, IT NEEDS TO ACCEPT LACQUER PAINT. ANY Help would be great. Some are uncomfortable to say, but you may send a private message. I don't do this for a living.

here's my process
1) Dip in Swede's prop dip 5-7 times
2) light sanding only if needed
3) 2-3 coats of laquer primer
4) color coats
5) seal with 2 coats of epoxy.
You could try adding whit pigment to your base coat of epoxy. I'm not sure if this will work or not though.

The first coat of Devcon is not necessary. Use two dips in the sanding sealer and then one in a white sealer/primer.

1) 3 dips into plasticoat
2) paint lure
3) clear coat with DEVCON
(I've tried the devcon for sealing, the primer dips...I always go back to the plasticoat cause it's just easier, cheaper, and leaves your wood/foam baits protected by a rock hard coat of plastic that's ready to paint)
