flourescent paints

4 posts in this topic

has anyone else had trouble using other flourscent paint as a second coat? my second color wants to bleed(if thats the right word) into the primary color. yellow (chart) is the primery color and i am trying to shoot blue(flor) as my second color, for scale effect and dark colored back line. i am using createx water based paints and i am shooting full strength.

Heat-set your primary color before applying the second color. You should do this after every coat, it doesn't take long and prevents any bleed problems. Take a hair-dryer and apply heat to your lure until the color is thoroughly dry; its sheen will change as the moisture leaves the paint. No amount of static drying time equals heat-setting for permanence. This will "cure" your problem.
