    custom creative paint

    If you're going to use solvent based paint, why not use lacquer? Huge color selection in taxidermy catalogs.

    Table rock Shad Pattern - Lucky Craft

    Well its a copy of my original table rock shad but I'll give it a shot. I use lacquer paint and I know most don't so I'll just use general color names. 1. cover white entire lure. 2. mix white with a small amount of chartreuse for sides. 3. mix deep violet with a small amount of red. 4. pearl white belly. 5. black dot.

    Any "REAL" custom crank bait makers left?

    Welcome back Tally! I'm still designing baits but I don't carve them anymore. Teched up a little bit and have been using a 3D printer. Its always a new adventure. Good to hear from ya!

    Is there anyway to fix my lure?

    The white powder is from the oxidation of the internal weight. There is no way to clear this lure up other than separating the two halves and cleaning the inside.

    Is there anyway to fix my lure?

    The only way I know of is to dissect the lure and clean it up from the inside.

    Clear coat drying

    Depends on what clear coat you are using. Epoxy must be turned. MCU, not necessary. Spray on clear coat, such as automotive, not necessary
