    Clear Coat Problems

    Jeff, at first I was a bit unsure about auto coat, however after using twos coats, the baits come out with a very nice finish. The finish is more what you are looking for....clear and thinner than epoxy. I am pretty happy with it, however I think I am still partial to the thicker coating of the epoxy. It seems to work a bit better with stickon 3d eyes, and I think I looks better with painted eyes (for my taste). You should give it a try for yourself. As for the fumes, I am only doing 2 a 5 baits at a time, and I use a brush instead do the airbrush, so the fumes are minimal, and do not bother anyone in the house. Keep in mind it only takes about 1/2 teaspoon of the clear coat to do 5 baits. Good luck, Max

    The eye is awesome. Where can I learn to paint glass eyes? What materials are involved and where do you get them? Awesome!

    Natural Gill

    I really like this. I think it would be a great South Florida bait.

    Awesome. Too pretty to fish. I would have to put that one on the wall.

    A few others from that big order..

    Wow, those two on the bottom look just like a baby Potomac Snakehead. I think that would be a great pattern on the potomac River. MaxRV Woodbridge, VA

    Rookie Green Test bait

    First try at mixing and blending colors. I was working for a baby bass thing, but wanted a bit of glow or chartreuse to increase visibility in stained water.

    Rookie Sexy Golden Shad

    First try at a Golden Shad. I have only been airbrushing baits since January, and this is bait# 20 or so. One of my personal favorites so far.

    [Closed] - Review My Progress

    I appreciate it. I really don't have an artistic bone in my body.....can't even draw a good stick figure, but after years of lookin at'em, I think it makes it a bit easier to paint them. I admit though that I was luck to find this site before beginning. Everything I have learned to this point has come from members of this site. So, thanks for your help! Max
