Default Clear coating a Buzzer

I finally got around to trying my hand at Buzzers. I am using clear Hard as Nails to coat them, but I am wondering if there is something better out there?

Hi Kerry,

We had a recent thread about using a glass like substance that looked really slick. If I remember what it was I will get back to you. Maybe the one who posted that will chime in. I looked all through the Fly Tying section and couldn't find it.

Frank

Update: Here is a link to the Ceramic finish I was trying to thing about. This stuff is available from Hobie stories.

If that stuff comes in clear it would work. I will look for something like it. Thanks Frank.
In case I cannot find it here I welcome any other ideas as well.

ive found that nail polish doesnt work very well. ive been using very thin layers of epoxy or CSI jig piant- clear finish.

Sally Hansen has a product called " Hard As Wraps". It dries quickly & is thicker. It might be just the ticket.

Thanks guys, I will check both suggestions out. I have some epoxy on hand and that was going to be my next try. I will look for the Sally Hansen's as well!

Kerry: I use Hard as Nails for my buzzers, it takes a few coats. What is it about Hard as Nails that you don't like?

Larry it is just the lazy streak in me. I find I have to give them about 4 coats to get the desired effect. There is nothing wrong with it, but if I can find a heavier epoxy that lets me do it in one coat I would give it a shot. But you are right, there is nothing wrong with Hard as Nails, just a flaw in my character

Hi Kerry,

Tob1 ties a great Buzzer. You might ask him what he is using.
