    I have been trying a few different products to get that "wet nose" look when fishing a big game nose. What are some of the products you use? Any thing special? Fish gloss coat? Krylon triple coat? Pros and cons of anything out there?

    You're in luck Steven offer classes, I believe. To answer the original question, I use clear gloss and build it up in layers, until I achieve the look I am after.

    I like to you clear satin spray paint, it has the right amount of shine, gloss is to shiny and unnatural looking imo.

    I paint on a water based gloss. Got that off the Rick Carter video.

    I use the same thing Steven uses as well, but it's not all the product in how you get that look, it's the application. A flash coat is very important, if not you will ruin all your color work. I get a nice look by a flash coat then use a blowdryer to purge any air out, then hit it one more time and purge it again with the dryer, then it looks wet. This method works extremely well with fish, just alittle different process.
