Well this is Purple Haze in its final form. I have big plans for this type of painting. I can't stop thinking about the next one. This one measures 6 inches nose to tail and is about 1.25 inches round at the front. Big lure= big fish. I hope.
Nice paint job. If the lure is 1.25" in diameter at the front, how big is the metal bill?!
I saw a process on television quite a few years ago that resulted in a paint job similar to this. They floated different colors of paint on some type of liquid. Not sure what type of paint it was or what the liquid was that they floated the paint on. Just remember they used several colors of paint and then took a stick and made swirl patterns in the floating paint. The object to be painted was then lowered into it and it would pick up the different colors.Not sure how you did yours, but it's very creative.
@ VermontPhisherVery creative paint job , .....I like it !Quite funny , just about two weeks ago I went to a bigger hobby , -and modelshop in the town , where my daughter lives , 50 miles from home and I've seen such paint there , that rayburn guy has described in his comment .They sold it in a set containing a few different colors for 12€(approx. 15$ ?) . I was in a hurry and also concerned about problems dipping my lures into that liquid , also about compatibility of that paint with my topcoats , ......so I did not buy it .Anyway , ....they had advertised it for dipping Easter eggs(got that tradition hiding chocolate eggs or real hardboiled ones for the kids on Easter Sunday in Germany) , ..........they've called it "marbling paint" , thus this particular effect is called "marbled paint pattern" . Great job , ..............greetz , Dieter
