The critical part in painting a crankbait is not the paint but the clear topcoat you apply over the paint. Most painters use water based acrylic airbrush paints and cover it with either epoxy or a very durable urethane like an auto clearcoat or a moisture cured urethane. Unless you are getting into painting as a continuing hobby or business, epoxy is the cheapest choice.

That's what I was wondering I used water based paint didn't know if I should find some oil to spray with or not I'll try the epoxy and see how well I can do thanks for the input
