After two years of experimentation I am finally getting paint jobs I am satisfied with. Thanks again to Funny Farm and his tutorial.

Rawk on Hoosierdaddy.
Is the metal flake between two layers of topcoat? Or is it on top mixed in with one coat?
Thats an awesome rouge. Funny Farm has it down with the tuts.

I mixed it in with the first layer of Devcon and coated it the second time without metal flake. Thanks for the compliment. This one came with a lot of labor. I am definetely not a natural born painter. I tested them out at the local lake today. Yes on Thanksgiving! Talk about an understanding wife. She even went out there with me. I am pleased with the dive depth and they run true. I would just like a little more vibration/swimming action. They swim real tight. Any advice? Wider lip? round lip instead of a coffin?

I am inspired to try some glitter on my next piece.
Keep up the good work.

Very Very nice!! It has been my experience that a wider lip will not help much once you start putting such an angle on a lip. However, my experience has not been on minnow type lures. It has been on regular shallow crankbaits. Increasing the angle of the lip is the only way I know to increase the wobble of the lure. Try a 3 to 5 deg. increase in the angle. But it will also lessen the depth that the lure will go. You may have to increase the length of the lip about 1/16 of an inch.
