Very nice looking paint jobs on those baits. Can you please share the name of the paint your using. I have been waiting to try to paint a few of my own baits but don't have a clue what type of paint to get to stick on the soft plastic. Another question do you prep the baits prior to spraying them to clean off oil residue that lay on the surface of the baits after they are poured. Thanks in advance.

Thanks all. Pancho, I am using LC soft plastic paints. FYI they need to be thinned alot and also need alot of retarder in order to spray thru an airbrush. As far as prep goes..I was bulk hand pouring all of the bodies, laying them out nicely in a plastic tub, and then painting 2 hundred or so at a time. I was having a severe problem with them getting slippery with oils. Just informed by Bear that it was a known problem with the plastic. I was putting them in the sink filled with warm water and dishwashing detergent and washing them off, than towel drying them. What a pain in the rump... At that point the paint sticks like a charm.

Thank you so much for the information on the paints. I now have to dig out the airbrush and practice. Man hundreds at a time you must sell a ton of baits. Great looking product. Keep up the great work. Your lure are top notch.
