Hi everyone
I put some auto clear coat on a batch if lures just now and as it cured it has cracked. Only happened badly on the lure pictured, and slightly (barely noticeable) on a couple of others.
Is it an issue with my paint? Or undercoat?
The one that was most affected (pictured) had been sitting around for over a month waiting for clear - could this have contributed?
Thanks in advance, any ideas???
Cheers
Dan

Forgot to mention - it only happened on the under side of this lure, the top is fine.

Dan have you used this paint before? How did you do the clear coat?
 Too heavy with clear can do this Dan.

Hi Dave, I have used this paint before and used etex as the clear - no dramas.

I sprayed the clear on today and I reckon it probably was too heavy on the first coat. Still trying to get the hang of spraying the auto clear coats! The rest of them I did today have come up a treat, will just have to be mindful of that first coat and making sure it's just a light one I think.

Is it an acrylic or enamel paint. I presume it is an acrylic auto clear? Can get poor reactions between enamel and clear paints/clears
