    7 5 2013 Crankbait

    This started as a white bass pro shops bargain bin "tournament special". I primed it white, custom mix chartruese on the sides, a little pearl white on the top with a light blue spine and scale pattern. Yellow belly and pink throat. I used a red sharpie for the gill blood streaks and the dotted eyes and a black sharpie for the diamond kill dot. I used harbor freight 5 min epoxy diluted with rubbing alcohol and a tad of blue glitter mixed with it. Cured on the drywheel for 9 hours. I'm getting better and better... Whatcha think?

    Here is another Royal Grape, Made from a DT10 clone body. This one has no gill markings or kill dot. The top is Royal Grape color ( mixed with purple, black and cobalt blue), yellow belly and a pink throat. There are silver holgraphic ( changing color ), blue and a tad of yellow glitter mixed into the epoxy. I took this to work to show my fishing friends and a few guys wanted to buy it from me. This one is being sent to my buddy in TN.
  5. I have seen some else used this (and I was amazed at the quality) and I was wandering whether or not if somebody had used this product as well and other possible ways to clear coat a crankbait without yellowing....
  6. Here is a HotRod crankbait I made last summer. The body is a bandit 200 that was chipped up really bad. I lightly sanded, primed it white, then shot it with krylon plasticoat black. The flames were made from duct tape that had flames on it. I took a blade and cut out two of the flames and taped them to the body. I think it turned out really neat after epoxy coating and drying on the dry wheel. Let me know what you think of Little Hot Rod
  7. Here is a crankbait I made last night for a friend. I call it Royal Grape. Its an RC 2.5 clone blank, primered white with Krylon plasticote, bottom is yellow creatix airbrush paint, the purple color is walmart 99 cent bottle acrylic diluted 50/50 with water until consistency of milk, with 2 drops of black creatix, and 2 drops of acrylic cobalt blue. the gill markings are red sharpie marker, and the kill dot is black sharpie marker and I used a metal washer as a template for the dot. The epoxy is locktite 5min epoxy, dliluted with a bit of irubbing alcohol and blue/purple/silver and a tad of yellow glitter mixed into it and put on the dry wheel over night. Its hard to see the silver glitter as I didnt put much in the mix, and it blends into the white. you can see a little bit of the yellow glitter along the back spine. I forgot to take the tape off the bill before i snapped the picture. I'm new to airbrushing and painting cranks, please tell me what you think of this one..
  8. I have heard of this Solarez. I am looking to get started in our making and trying to find the cheapest way out on everything that will also produce the best product for the price. I have heard this stuff does really good. So my question to everyone is what exactly is it, how is it applied/used, where to get it, price and how is the product?
  9. I am looking to get started with painting my own crankbaits and was wondering what all i needed to do it. Hoping someone could tell me all the things i need to get to get started. Also where are places to get blanks, hooks, etc for crankbaits. What types of paint are the best to use and whats best for clear coating. Anything that i would need to know to paint my own baits would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  10. Hi there , folks , Just made a little video this morning displaying my latest lure design . Some of you guys and gals out there might have seen my previous weightshifter lures made from timber turned down on a lathe , .....now I took it to the next level . The working effort just did not become less , but this lure made of artificial material has the advantage of not being vulnerable to water sepage , provided that the glue would seal off all parts properly , ...so a careful glueing proccees is in order . I'm still a bit concerned whether the lexan core with the mounted hook hangers would hold up well against strong fish , ........but on the other hand the epoxy glue would surely add a great deal to the lure's stability later . Gonna test that prototype for it's casting perfprmance coming weekend , .......hope that the working week would come to pass in a breeze ! Any question or critics welcome , ............thanks for your interest , ....greetz , diemai
  11. Looking to get into luremaking full swing, and I really want to start off with larger sized flat sided cranks. Bought some from both LPO and netcraft (only 7/16" wide, in both sizes and not full bodied enough), but they were not as large as what I want. I think what I'm looking for is a body size about like the Bagley's B-flat, or larger. If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.
  12. Ive been experimenting with foil wrapping my crankbaits, and I'm having trouble figuring out how to go about painting them to get a nice shine. I've read that you're supposed to coat the lure before painting, but I'm thinking that if you don't paint the foil before coating, that the foil won't shine through the paint... I painted one last night directly on the foil and it doesn't shine through either (the paint is opaque, so you can't even tell that I foil wrapped it, it looks like a normal painted lure). I was told that "glass paint" or "window paint" will allow the foil to shine through the paint. WHAT KIND OF PAINT DO YOU GUYS USE WHEN FOIL WRAPPING? AND HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT THE WHOLE PROCESS?
  13. Hi everyone , I am new to the forum and new to painting lures. I came across something today that might be an interesting option for painting lures. I have just experimented with a few lures spraying the Tamiya model spray cans and have had decent results. So today I am surfing the web and come across these paints. http://dixieart.com/Montana_Alien.html http://www.mtncolors.com/products/47-spraypaint-category-detail Montana Colors also sells different spray nozzles to achieve different effects including some very fine lines. The smaller "Alien" and "Micro" cans are about the same price as model spray paint cans if not cheaper. What is your opinion on this do you think they would work? Ross Central , Arkansas
