Ok....to get started.
1. remove the hooks and split rings off the lure that you are gonna paint. To hold the lure while painting, I buy exacto knives and remove the blade.....then put the rear hook hanger in the blade slot.......screw it down and you are good to go.
2. I start sanding with 400 grit paper. I buy 3M at advance auto and it comes with 5 or so sheets. You can sand several baits with one pack
3. You don't want to sand off all the paint in most cases. You just want to rough up the surface to get the primer to stick sufficently.
4. When you are finished sanding. Take a paper towel and some wax/grease remover(which you can get at advance auto) and clean the lure thoroughly. Then you tape off the bill top keep your overspray off it. I use 3M painters tape for delicate surfaces. Your lure should look like this now
5. Now to prime the lure. Make sure that you are in a well ventilated area or that you have a good respirator. You just want to put some light coats of primer on the lure. I like Duplicolor sandable primer in gray/black. I use a hair dryer to acclerate drying of the coats.
Now, your lure should look like this....
I will continue this thread tomorrow night with the next few steps.....basecoating and laying down the first layer of paint. Stay tuned....
