The bait is a topwater walker and there's nothing all that special about it. Just wanted to show the scale pattern on the foil. Any ideas as to how it was done?
It was netting Mark, but how was the paint applied? You can't spray foil through netting.
Your close JR.
Your in the ballpark JR. Here's a hint. The paint was applied after the lure was foiled. Applying the paint before applying the foil would result in the paint being rubbed off while burnishing the foil.
Pretty close. The netting was stretched tight in an embroidery hoop and then paint was sprayed over the netting. After saturating the netting the bait was pressed into it.
I've wanted to come up with an easy and cheap way to put scales on a foiled bait for a while now. It works great on foil and could be an alternative way to apply scale patterns on painted baits as well.
Give it a try JR. I think you'll like it.
