I love how your spots turned out. Any tips or tricks on how you get them to come out like that. I have been working on this trout pattern, but struggle with spots. Great looking paint scheme.

I apologize for not responding sooner. I just saw the email and realized I had sent it to the wrong folder.

Thanks for the compliment. As far as the spots, I make a template by taking the plastic packaging from a lure box, or kids toy or whatever you can find that is able to be cit or drilled, but flexible enough to shape how you want. I used a 1/16" drill bit and drilled about 25 holes randomly in about a 3x1" area. To get sharp defined spots, hold the template right against the body and shoot your paint. To get softer or faded looking spots hold the template about 1/8" off the body and shoot your color. One of the main things to do here is shoot several light coats instead of one heavy coat. 

Hope this helps and tight lines, bb
