    Want to say some thing but what exactly did you do?

    Is this paint? or is it fish skin? these are amazing! Great job!

    Great work as usual. One question though....how do you get the shimmer on the gill plate? I've tried a few different things and I can never seem to get the "realism" I'm looking for on the cheeks. Just curious.

    thank you again everyone. Joe the plumber, I use pearl powders and pearl paints, using different colors. I've started mixing them a little to achieve different colors but mostly just mix them on the surface as I paint

    I hope this helps, any other questions let me know.

    Braided line, this is a swimbait from Mattlures, awesome bait. I put a lot of time into painting that thing. I hope this is what you're looking for

    I think your time and effort shows! this is my new favorite swimbait paint job i have seen to date! it is so realistic! I especially like the gill plate. great job!

    That clears that up.


      You said," I put a lot of time in painting that thing."

       Good work always comes to the fore front!

    I wish I had your talent.  Great job.
