  6. Maybe An Easier Way To Make Stencil

    Styrofoam, from hot cups. They are easy to cut, cheap, but not durable. I also use table top cover made from soft plastic, jugs that are made of clear plastic, ant even regular paper.
  7. Airbrush Clogging

    I will definitively try that.
  8. Airbrush Clogging

    Just on same topic (airbrush clogging). I have Master G22 after 20 minutes thinned Createx spraying the airbrush clogged and then messed up everything that I have painted before. I have tried 3 more times before giving up. Can this clogging be the result of the cheap airbrush or something else. I am using Createx AUTO colors, thinned with water and floor finish. I have cleaned the airbrush with alcohol 70%, with back and forward action. I am shooting under 20 - 10 psi with tank. Should I change the airbrush or just practice more.... Thank you.. Steve
  9. Masking Tape

    May be it is not me after all.....
  10. Masking Tape

    Good morning all, I have got yet another failure last night painting hell hound. I have used masking tape to out line the painting area and some how paint leaked under the tape. I have used Createx diluted with water and Pledge with future (by the way great idea to use Pledge). After each session I would blow dry it. Is there a possibility that the blow dryer is pushing paint under the tape or should I use some other method to out line the painting area? THX Steve
  11. Help With My Topcoat

    I've used Etex on my spinner's heads successfully, however I did wait until Etex would start to set before application. For the lures top coat I have build a drying wheel. It is very easy, get regular rotisserie something like that: Ace Trading-Grill ACC 2 8005621 Deluxe Rotisserie 36" Basically, if you have a motor that does around 6 rpm and a rod it should be easy. Also I have used Radio Shack alligator clams to hold the lure in place.
  12. shit roach crank bait and smelt jerkbait

    Thank you very much for the video provided. As a rookie it is very helpful to see how the different things are done, at least for me. Beautiful job. Thank you
  13. Glueing Eyes On Jigs

    I have tried to use Super Glue and Head Cement, just to get eyes on to the powder painted surface. Super Glue work just fine, but Head Cement turned glued area in yellow for some reason. I am covering my spinner baits and will cover jig in a layer of Envirotex. The reason for that, is after one trip all my powder painted spinners and jigs are "destroyed" by hitting underwater the rocks. Other wise use epoxy.
