Can you use fabric mesh under foil for scales on 8 in baits without topcoat failure?

Yes. The key with foiling is to Topcoat the foil with epoxy, then paint on it. When the paint finish is done, topcoat again with an Epoxy.
For foil,I use either Silver Duct tape or everyday foil with spray adhesive.

I saw on one of these threads someone used MS Pub to foil and print a picture on tissue for a crankbait. Does anybody know of a free download that will allow you to flip a picture the other way, so you have the picture of the baitfish facing the right way on each side?
Thanks for all the help.

If you are printing on tissue, then there is no need to flip the image before you print it. Just print the image twice and when you flip it to apply to the foil it will be transparent and work great. No distortion from the paper.
