    Question Paint for Poppers

    I sure need your help! I've tied for several years but haven't done poppers until now. Do you use brush or spray? Acrylic or other? Do you Clearcoat too? What brands work best? What colors have you been most successful with? Thank-you very much!
    Kind Regards,

    You may need some kind of a wood filler for cork to fill any gaps or pores. I usually use regular spray paint with a base coat and a light "dusting" of a top color. I also have not found that painting different colors other than dark or light makes too much difference in how the fish feel about the poppers.

    cork is just wood bark, If you want it to last I would spray them with primer let it dry well then top coat with black, yellow and what ever color the bellies if the local frogs are.

    What popper "creations" I do is with balsom wood and I expect about as durable as the cork. What I do for color is the finger nail polish. Not too far from me is one of those Dollar Tree stores and all thier finger nail colors are $1.00 - there's also some withthe glitter silver or gold flakes which goes good on the underside of the popper. Do manage to catch a few gills and some bass with them.

    Hey, like I always say .... it's O.K. for the girls I go with!
