This is my 16cm (6,3 inch) slow sinking brownie/ char swimbait. The mainbody is carved from beech wood and the fins are made from spruce and glued into the body. The body is covered with very fine diamond shaped scales that are more scratched/ engraved than really carved into the wood.
The paintjob is a mix of chrome spraycan primer, airbrushed base layers and brushpainted details.
The bait has an epoxy finish but I also gave it a second very thin coat of semigloss varnish to reduce the shinyness a little bit.
