What should I use to protect paint on lures?

  1. Anybody know of something to protect the paint on lures? I was thinking of clear nail polish. Thanks for any help.
  2. Alot depends on type of paint used. I've been using everything from epoxy clear coat to enamel, acrylic, and even super glue. Warning, don't try to clear coat any chrome painted baits, it will dull them to an ugly grey! Try to experiment on a lure that you won't use and see if you get the outcome that you want first, you may find that the clear coat you use may chemically react with the paint on the lure and turn it a different color, or ruin the lure altogether. Best of luck. :B

  3. Tomb, Thanks! I looked at that thread before, but I must have missed that part. Those guys are AMAZING. Thanks again

    No problem Muskyman. Those guys certainly are amazing. Even if a person didn't fish, they would appreciate the craftsmanship.
