.... for spray cans?

Went with Testers model enamel this time around. (If it has problems I'll redo it latter?) Found the selection of colors sparce at Wally World, but had to get something working ASAP!

But what works and what should one avoid (if any)?

Just found out that with Tester's,,, black does not play well with the yellow!
Guess one is due for a refinishing already. (Ugh!)
Fortunately, Candy Apple red & yellow do play well together.
The search for "rattle cans" is on.

Uh-OH, somebody else has got the bug......
Last night I was playing with throwing some plugs while my clm was soaking, and I wound up throwing off a Roccus plug that he had built, and I had just finished repainting.....Thank God for low tide, I waded out to retrieve it, water up and over and into the waders, screw it, that plug has caught fish.
Just a note on the paints, make sure that one color is completely dry before covering it with another color.

sounds like you got a krinkle finish, the fish wont care!..... I use rustolim when using spray bombs.. all the colors seem to play well together..... they clear coat well with varnish or epoxy...
