If you are talking about the water based from CSI,that is incorrect.
Cure at 150 degrees for 12 hours,yes 12 hours.

Heres a little more info:
I put some seal coat over some jigs i airbrushed and three days later i was able to use my fingernail to peel it off.
I called CSI and the dude said for a hard cure,bake at 130-150 for 12 hours.I bet his ears are ringing from my reaction.
I went to my shop and set my toaster for the lowest,maybe 175 and cooked em 1/2 hour.
Checked em today for s and g's and they cured very hard.
Maybe at room temperature it takes a week???????
Anyway,ill try 130 for two hours or three tommorrow and ill let you know.

Threw a bunch of jigs in the oven,175 for 45 minutes,looks good and passed the drop test.
Drop test:Dropping a jig on my wifes ceramic tile kitchen floor while she asks"what the hell you doing"
Maybe 175 for two hours tommorrow??????
The nice thing about this lure building is the excitement from experimenting.
