These are built from a design by Rayburnguy.  Top flatsided from paulownia.  Bottom fat body from balsa.

Dale, I trace the crank and cut the foil tape and apply.  It will conform some to a round body but you can't cover the whole bait with foil or it will bunch up and develop seams - just down to the belly and up to the shoulders.  I paint those anyway, so no loss.  It's important to burnish the edges down so they don't show after texturing the foil.  Some guys like to coat the foil with clearcoat before painting.  I don't bother.  I texture them with the knurled knob from a Vise Grip.  Clean paint overspray after color basecoating with Qtips dipped in denatured alcohol, to keep the foil shiny.
