  1. What can I use to soak my airbrush parts in with Createx 4008 Airbrush/Spray-Gun Cleaner? I used to use a glass cup, but it required too much restorer to cover the parts. TIA
  2. I am a Canadian who is getting into custom lure painting. However I am having issues finding crankbait blanks that are cost efficient. Purchasing blanks from many of the large US suppliers is quite costly right now with the Canadian dollar at .74 cents to the dollar, before the large shipping costs. I am wondering if anyone knows any cheaper routes I can take to get quality blanks delivered to Canada. I found found numerous sellers on DHgate and Alibaba, but am unsure of their quality and cant justify ordering 100units at MOQ if they're non functional. Thanks in advance
  3. I tried to upload a drawing, quality didn't work out. Deleted post.

  5. Today i painted my very first lure and it was an old beat up Hot n Tot that i found when i was fishing and I removed the remaining paint and decided to paint it today and without having much airbrushing experience i went with a firetiger pattern and I am really happy with the way it turned out. now to add some epoxy and clear it and add some hooks but i just wanted to share my first lure with you guys! If you guys have any tips that could be useful for me with painting lures feel free to post them all help is appreciated. Thanks!
  6. My version of Summer gill pattern, I used a Rat-L-trap style blank painted with a pearl white base followed by sunfish yellow , some violet for the stripes a bright orange belly and then added some violet hi-light mist to obtain a brilliant natural look, then finished with 2 coats of durable finish.

  7. I hope this link work's having trouble with the attach link button.... I put together a little video of all the pic's I had collecting dust on my computer. I quit painting a few years ago so figured I'd make this just to give you new painters some ideas for pattern's.. If you want to copy any of my pattern's feel free to. I'll ask any question's I can just shoot them to me.. Enjoy....
  8. Hi everybody let me introduce myself. My name is Kyle and I've fished my whole life but never made a single lure. Then about 3 weeks ago i found Bear's and started pouring some soft plastics. Needless to say I was hooked which is what led me here. I think this stuff is awesome and even though I am BRAND new at it, I already love it. And the way that everybody is so willing to help others figure it out is just amazing to me. I really wish I would have known about this stuff (lure making and the forums) years ago, but anyway, here i am. So today i made my first crankbait. from scratch outta wood. carved it sanded it, put in lip and screw eyes with epoxy, no rattles, just keeping it simple since it's my first try. i just wanted something respectable. The thing came out pretty damn good considering I never worked with wood, or to be honest, really any tools my whole life. Well, it looked pretty damn good, until I got to the airbrush that is... what I did with the airbrush, well... I can't really even describe it, it was so bad. I need help!!! I think it came from 3 main reasons: 1.) lack of skill, which i'm not worried about, i'll develop over time. i've always been good at art. 2.) i didn't have anything to hold the lure up, like the aligator clip stand things i see people on videos using, so i'll have to order some of those. I was holding it up with pliers (i know haha) and it just caused a mess. 3.) This was by far the worst, I had no idea how to properly clean the airbursh while using it, and it's still not clean as I am waiting for advice. I had some cleaning solution that I was trying to follow the directions on, and it had me running from room to room to find a sink, grab a cup and paper towels, it was just frantic. 4.) do i need some sort of lacquer before painitng or will just the white base do? I'm using a paasche VLS double action airbrush, paasche DSR500 compressor w filter, trap, and gauge, and createx paint. Needless to say it's not the tools fault, obviously, it's mine. Any help you guys can give me to get started would be greatly appreciated, especially when it comes to cleaning the airbrush efficiently during changing colors (set-up is not in room with sink). I also don't thing I waited long enough for the paint to dry and it just clogged up. I pretty much did everything wrong! I say this laughing at myself, so don't worry, i know I sound down but I'm not discouraged, just can't believe i did such a bad job. Thanks in advance for the help!!! you can count on me being back with more questions about wood and plastic cranks... I will prevail! (with your help of course.) -Kyle
