top coat

Its probly acrylic based, which means it will not last. If you are looking for something easer to use epoxy try dick nites fishermun's lure coat.

If you are talking about Createx gloss top coat, it is fine for clearing your bait to protect your paint before final clear coat, but it will not stand up alone to fishing abuse. You need something much tougher. Epoxy (Devcon 2 ton), etex, new lustre, crystal sheen or dick nites.....these are your best choices.

I've used createx paints on a lure w/o coating it and it held up surprisingly well. heat set the paint/top coat with a blow dryer for added adhesion.

Let me clear this up.....no pun intended...... Createx paints are great, I use them all the time. Yes heat setting will adhere the paint, but Createx gloss top coat will not stand up to what actual fishing puts a lure through....trust me on this. :nuhuh:
