  5. Can anyone tell me how companies like Rapala and Spro are making these paint jobs with such crazy detail? Are they using a computer? I have a customer who wants me to duplicate the Spro Fire Craw pattern and it’s crazy detailed! If this is a computerized wrap, how do I get into this?
  6. I know I'm probably opening a can of worms here but I need advice on the best clear coat for finishing my baits after they've been painted. I want the paint job I put out to be an equal to what you find at the stores. This seems to be a big secret. I started out using water based paints, and 2 part epoxy as a finish. Then moved on to the different MCUs (DN, Garco, Diamond, etc..) and they just aren't like what you get from large scale manufacturers. What are they using?!? Is it a secret MCU receipe? Is it automotive finish? Oil paints? I've stayed away from oil paints and automotive finish for the health reasons but am open to ideas. Please help!!
  7. I have been painting baits for a while now on a small scale using a Pasche Talon (gravity fed) with water based createx paints. I want to start painting lots of baits the same color patterns to sell them. I've noticed some videos online of people doing this and oftentimes the paint container is attached the the bottom of the airbrush. What is the best setup for this? I can definitely see the advantage of not having to constantly put drops of paint in the hopper. Any recommendations on equipment for somone wanting to go from a hobbyist to start painting large scale?
  8. Hello all, Just started selling my custom painted cranks and I have a question. Should I be asking for payment before I start on a custom order? I'd hate to paint a handful of baits a certain way and then have that person not pay.... Thoughts?
  9. I've been painting my own crankbaits using Createx Paint (transparent white as primer coat) and DN-S81 as a clear coat and have noticed that as I'm fishing them and as the finish chips off from hit rocks or whatever that the original color show through. What I mean is the primer coat I put on and all comes off as the finish but the original color does not. How do I solve this? Should I clear coat after I prime the bait? Is there a way to completely remove the original color? Thanks for the help! What a great site.

    Juvenile Rainbow Trout

    This is my attempt at painting a juvenile rainbow trout, where they're going from the fingerling stage with the blotches into their adult coloration. If you have any suggestions, I will absolutely welcome them!

    DT10RoyalGrape

    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.
