RE:E-Z Shape Sparkle Body sand eels

When you look at the EZ-Shape stuff in the bottle, it will look considerably whiter than when it dries - jet black looks like a light grey in the bottle.
Once it has been in the water on the end of your line for a little while, it will regain this whiteness, and look lousy. To overcome this problem, i've successfully used clear vinyl jig finish from Feather-Craft, to coat the EZ-Shape once it is really good and dry. This prevents it from absorbing water and therefore prevents it from turning white, but it still retains the softer feel of the EZ-Shape and doesn't add as much weight as epoxy.
