Rookie Question - Sealing Balsa Cranks with KBS...

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone on the forum....I have enjoyed reading posts about all the talented bait and lure makers here!


Rookie question....


I have shaped several balsa shallow cranks, and I am ready to seal them and begin painting them.


I ordered some KBS Diamond for final dipping and clear coating....Can I use a dip of KBS to begin the process as my sealer....then sand that coat and paint over that first sealer coat of KBS?


I have seen so many different sealer options on the forum....It seems like sealing with CA glue, proportionate, epoxy, and others all seem like a personal preference rather than a rule of thumb practice....I am hoping that KBS Diamond as a sealer might add initial strength to the bait as well as seal it?


Any help or guidance on this would be awesome. 


Thank you all so much,


Waco, Texas
