lure signing

Post by neb » Fri Sep 18, 2009 10:38 am

Can anyone tell me what is the best way to sign a lure. That is what type of pen/ink is best so that it stays put and does not run, especially when clear coat is placed over top of it. Nev

@ neb

I use permanent felt pens , the type to label CD's .

Since I can never be sure , whether my topcoats would dissolve and smear the signature , I apply a coat of acrylic clear paint over it before topcoating the lure .

A piece of clear tape would surely do as well .

good luck , diemai howdy

Overhead projector pens are meant to work well.

Theres an art line permanent fine line felt tip you can get from most post shops which is labelled for out doors marking, is U.V proof and weather resistant so should not fade! thumbsupsmilie
Beginner or pro, doesent matter how good you are, fishings a gambling game. Put your lure in the right place at the right time and it will get smashed!

Good point re the fading .... I've got a number of Steve Murphy wooden Vipers where the signature has simply faded over time -duh skky

Now need to make sure these are kept completely out of any light !!!

The best and most expensive are Pantone markers available in every pantone colour (printers colour range) with three different tips and are refillable and permanent. Available from any specialist art supplier and nothing I have found melts it or dissolves it thumbsupsmilie howdy thumbsupsmilie

Not sure how much they cost nowadays but were about $25-30 about 10 years ago when I bought my last lot $$$$$ $$$$$

I don't use anything else and the range runs into 100's of tones and shades including block colours like blacks for signing lures

I always used the artline pen that's permanant .3 or.5mm lots better that a cd marker, cd markers need to be finer and ther don't stand up to the sun.
