    Poplar glide bait

    Here is a poplar glide bait that I carved out of poplar. The finish is photo foil with a top coat of etex. The lure weighs 1.75oz and is 4 inches long. The lure is a fast sinking glide bait. Also, I caught a schoolie striped bass on it today!

    ABT Glide Bait I foiled and painted. I used "cheap" kitchen type foil attached with Solarez UV cure resin using MEKP for curing agent. This bait has a distinctive and fairly deep scale pattern in the mold. All Createx paints. Used opaque white to cover the seams, then transparent paints for body and back. Opaque black for spots and pearlized white for belly. Seems the overspray of the white covered the foil more than I wanted but it comes through in outside light better. One of my first attempts with foil. Barry

    ABT Glide Bait I foiled and painted. This bait has a deep scale pattern in the mold. I applied imitation silver leaf to this bait to compare to the kitchen foil type of my other bait. Attached the leaf to the bait with D2T pressing down with breath and cotton ball. Scrubbed it off with DA a couple times before I got an acceptable job this being one of my first attempts at this procedure. Wanting the silver sides of the natural trout effect I was careful not to get too much transparent white on the sides. Seams much easier to hide due the leaf being very thin base coated edges opaque white to hide color transition. Body paints transparent Createx colors then opaque black for spots and pearlized white for belly. Liked the looks of this one better than the one I foiled with kitchen type foil. Came out with a crushed silver look made for a nice looking silver sided trout. The other bait looked more like I had applied chromed type paints Barry
  7. 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?
