Damage to paint caused by chemical reaction

Recommended Posts

Every now and then I'll discover that the paint on a lure has gotten soft and mushy due to a chemical reaction with rogue soft plastic.  When i separate them, the paint remains soft.  Is there a way to "fix" this?  I don't intend to (or hope not to) sand and repaint the lure.  I would just like to harden the mushy paint.  is there a "fixative" that will usually work?

I have no experience with this, but I would try a couple things.  One would be the quick dry clear fingernail coating (Sally Henson) over the whole area and out a ways hoping to capture the soft inside a hard coating.  Second would be UV cure epoxy in the hard formula applied similarly.  Good luck.

What kind of lures? Hard baits or jig heads? I've had this happen on a few cheap jig heads left in the car during summer heat.

Sorry for the delay.  Hard baits-usually.
