Createx Help!!

7 posts in this topic

I just finished carving a cranbait out of basswood and applied several coats of primer (bullseye 123). I airbrushed the lure with Createx and let it dry for two days and it still feels kinda of tacky. Is there something I did wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

thanks for the reply. another question: how long after applying the primer should you wait to paint?? Will I be able to clearcoat it even though it remains tacky? thanks again.

I would let it completely dry for 24 hours - if it is humid that might cause you problems....the mositure will stay in the primer.

I am not sure about clear coating it - it might smear your paint job?

Maybe someone else could help you with this...

Strip it and start over. I shoot createx on top of Flex Coat without problems (cured 24HR appx). May have been a primer that was just not compatible with the createx.

I will have to agree with Dave. Sounds like a compatibility problem. What you can do is this. I wipe a coat of polyurathane on the bait with a rag and let it dry. Touch sand it with 220 grit sandpaper. Then you can just use regular white latex enamel house paint for an undercoat. You will have to thin it with water. Then just shoot your Createx. I have used this metheod many many times with no problems.
