I typically use Krazy glue for my hard bodied ant but I white-ish appearance shows after drying, what type of laquer can you buy locally that will give it a nice shine finish?

Sally H. polish, a great tying product not intended for that purpose. Your ants will shine like the sun.

Use the Sally Hansen's in black if you can find it. Loon Hard Head is good but takes a bit of time to dry. Clear Cure Goo in thin or hydro most certainly work.

When I read that the ant was a resin covered bead before seeing the pic I honestly didn't think I'd like it. A lot nicer than I thought, what size are they?

any size hook that will accept some beads.

the smaller the hooks get it will become harder to use the beads so a build up thread segments and coat with uv resin.

That's what I was thinking about the smaller hooks and beads, so that got me curious about what size they were in the pic. Thread bumps and some sally's is how I make my wet ants. I tie in a piece of pearl crystal flash and give a few wraps around each bump as I'm tying, then coat gives a nice effect. Thanks.
