Hey guys, anyone have a technique to produce those almost perfectly round, dot on dot eyes on bagley crank baits? I have a few db2's I'd like to finish with that type of eye. Thanks, ED.

A dipped nail is still my trick. Practice on a similar substrate befor going to your bait.
Be sure and use two different sized nails!

A couple of regular pencils with unused erasers is what I use. The eraser as is for the first color and a second eraser trimed down in a childs pencil sharpener for the smaller dot. Joe

I agree. Been using nails on my spinnerbaits. There are a lot of posts on eyes here and tm. Seems like the way of choice without getting into big expense.

thanks Tally, Joe, and Chip,,,,again I'll be trying these tips tonight. Oh yea, did any of you guys see the color of the LOTTO, "take a chance" special addition rouge that sold on ebay? It went for like 150 bucks or more! I did'nt try to buy it but the color was kinda cool. It was called lipstick wet on the top( kind of a light pink purple) and the bottom was kind of a dark cantaloupe. Maybe someone should paint one up and show it off! Thanks guys

If you know anyone in your area that makes signs you can get them to make any size dot in any color and they will be stamped out. Then all you have to do is to peel them off and put the big dot on and then put a small one on top. They have all colors of that sign material. I get them made out of scrap material and there is very little cost. I have even moved them on the lure without hurting the paint. I think it is easier than paint and if you don't get it right you can move it.
