To make a balsa plug bullet proof, cleacoat the lure with long drying Devcon before you paint it. Then shoot your paint. This will not work with water based paints, only lacquer. Then clearcoat with Devcon for the final clearcoat.
How can someone go about using C-tex paints if you are wanting to use the Devcon as a sealer for balsa? Can I, or should I use a white laquer for the base coat then spray the waterbased C-tex over the laquer for the final color scheme.
