General Paint Application Tips


Our liquid paints are extremely flammable. Always be aware of your surroundings. Extinguish all sources of ignition, pilot lights, open flame, etc. Ventilate the area where paint is being used by allowing fresh air to circulate. Open windows or use an exhaust fan with a motor designed to be operated in a hazardous atmosphere to avoid any explosions. For personal protection, we recommend using a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator for use with paint solvents or organic vapors.


All normal surface preparations should be observed. Paints should be applied between 70-80 degrees F. For best results work in an area with low humidity. Surface to be painted should be free of oil, dirt, and moisture. Remove all release agents from jigs which have been cast. This can be done by rinsing them in a strong soap solution or solvent such as acetone. When painting over highly polished surfaces like nickel, chrome or silver, the surface must be etched. Use a solution of 10% Nitric Acid and rinse with warm water, or prime surface wfth a self-etching primer before using our White Primer.


Paints will appear thick when cold. THIN WITH CAUTION! First warm paint to room temperature by placing container in a warm water bath. Next, stir paint thoroughly with a wooden stir stick, being careful not to damage can lining. If paint still appears heavy,thin sparingly with appropriate thinner. lf paint is thinned too much it will lose its ability to cover.


Paints may be thinned 30-50% for spraying. Coverage will be affected by thinning. If paint seems to dry too quickly or "cobweb" before getting to the surface of the lure, use Retarder Thinner. When using an air brush, use a larger tip with slightly higher pressure. When spraying always use a paint-spray respirator.
