  1. I also use the floor care and a little water pretty well as long as you stay away from the "extreme glitter" and colors like that, the glitter is just too large...i work in the automotive field and have started using some PPG water based wax and grease remover as a spray through can be diluted way way down and I havnt had any problems with the floor care drying and sticking up the brush.

    Folk Art Craft Paint Question

    It's been years since I have even posted but I figured I would chime in and give you my experiences...I always painted with solvent based HOK brand paint, but I recently have had to temporarily use water based because of smell and the location at which I am currently able to paint...I have been using folk art some, just because it's so cheap and they do have a lot of cool colors...I personally recommend the pledge floor care as a thinner, yes it is a bit hard to clean...but it helps it flow out of the airbrush so much better...I just guess when I mix, but it's something like 20% pledge 10% water...hope that helps a little
  3. I recently bought this lure at a flea market because i always read about the famous old balsa squre bill's with the brass line ties...i have tried to find some information on the value and what it is exactly, but i cannot find much. I think it is a wedge lip and to my understanding they were only made for one year. I think it is genuine. I know its balsa, and has brass line tie and hook hangers, also says bagley on the lip. I have attached some pictures for you guys to take a look at, maybe you can tell me a little more and what it might be worth??

    Video Of Small Lure Making Factory

    No problem, its amazing how you can search for hours for something you want and cant find it. Then when your looking at something totally irrelevant there it is! Ya i guess it's not small at all for a fishing tackle manufacturer, certainly much much larger then my "plant" (a small shed like building lol) ...I have worked in a very large manufacturing plant that makes pieces for air compressors so i guess i was comparing it to that...Anyways ya looks like they have quite the setup, i especially like the homemade track that the jigs were being hung on to be passed through the heat lamps, pretty neat.

    Painting Basecoat Question. Quick!

    Basically you just want contrasting colors. Black base light colored scales, white base dark and bright colored scales. Do a search on "painting scales" and there is lots of info. Here is just one link for example:

    Natural Gill

    Similiar to the Dark Gill in style, but more of a subtle color scheme. I just call this Natural Gill. Let me know what you guys think.

    Dark Gill

    This is what i call dark gill. Let me know what you guys think! I have two other patterns that are similiar in style i.e. same fins, scale design, vertical bars, etc. but with different colors. This pattern is one of my personal favorites and i think it is just a tad unique, although that seems almost impossible to do sometimes!
