These are numbers 8, 9, and 10. I still have a long way to go before I'm kicking out respectable work, so don't laugh (I'll take a few giggles, but please don't point and laugh hysterically). I just started with the fins using stencils, but I need to use clear stencils so I can better see where to place them.

You're doing great. Can't believe that you only have painted 10 baits. Those are done very well!

Yes they look pretty good to me too, especially the last one.pete

Very Impressive, you are going to be good at this.

Nice work, especially the last one like Pete said. You are way ahead of me on the fins!

OK here goes:lolhuh:.........:whistle:Alright is that enough ????
Only kidding they look real good. You're really getting the hang of it with only 9-10 paint jobs under your belt.
Must be one of those dang fast learners again

Oh no, no, NOOOOOOO!!! When I say 8, 9, and 10. I mean the only the one's I would accually show to others. If you only knew how many paint jobs I have stripped off with acetone, and I won't even get into the "chrome spray paint" fiasco that nearly got me beaten with a rolling pin. But I will keep plugging away, and I thank you guys for the engouragement.
P.S. If you ever see chrome paint at your local hardware retailer....for your own sanity and safety.....leave it on the shelf.

I had one lure done and ready for clear. I looked at it and thought to myself, "This time I think I finally did one I can be satisfied with."
I reached down for the clear and grabbed the wrong airbrush. I let fly and covered one entire side of the bait...with primer white.
You're baits look great. Keep on truckin'...

Kevin, I know what you mean with the chrome spray. I bought some to try, it went on nice. It didn't look like chrome, more like the dull side of aly foil, but still metalic. I then coated it with epoxy, this killed it and it turned out a boring mid-grey. Not to mention all the compatability problems and drying times!
The lures look great.
