Another Couple Crankbaits

Recommended Posts

Nice!  On baits that are predominately white, I don't like to use epoxy because it will eventually yellow, at least slightly.  But it makes a very nice looking topcoat - if you have a lure turner for it to cure on.  The easiest topcoat I know is Solarez UV cured polyester resin.  Brush it on or dip the lure, rotate it for a few minutes while it levels out, then zap it with a UV nail salon light for 3 minutes - voila, ready to fish.  You can also let the sun do the cure - set it outside for half an hour.  Solarez cost is pretty reasonable - about $30/quart - compared to most other durable topcoats.

Thanks man. as a top coat I chose to put a few coats of crystal clear enamel spray paint cause it was cheaper. Seams like it will do the job. Pretty hard surface.

Not only does it have to be hard, it has to be tough and waterproof.  If the enamel does all that, you're golden.
