Robert,

Those are really looking great. Are you still using rattle cans??? If so, those fantastic!!! Either way, you really starting to gain skills.

You did a great job , they look far better than my own spray-can colored lures , I just don't take the patience for achieving such neat looking baits .

Also like your first foil lure , I'm planning on my first one as well , with your pic you have already helped me a bit , otherwise , I guess , I would have attached the lip before foiling .

Greetings , diemai

WOW! And with cans. Simply amazing. And what an awesome job for a first foil. This man gets hold of an airbrush and look out!

Dang! Those look good for a rattle can. If I could do that I wouldn't have bought an airbrush. What are you using for the scales? I'm still on a quest for good 'scale' stenciling material....

Great looking baits. You are a master with rattle cans, for sure.

Do you use a clear coat for a top coat?

Diemai,thanks for the good feed back.The foiled one is a Stanford that the paint cracked on,I just took the bill out before I started.These are great around riprap,and thats what I patterned my own after(with a little mod's).All of my Stanfords cracked,I guess it was the way they prepped the cedar before painting.

CampionBoatGuy thanks for the kind words.I get my scale material from walmart in the craft dept.They have a couple different sizes.

Mark thanks again,I seem to be able to count on you for good feedback(you must feel sorry for me :lol:).I started out using Krylon Clear Glaze and clear coated all these but I didn't think it was going to be hard enough for rocks,it dried pretty hard though.So I thought I would give the D2T a try.These have D2T over the clear glaze.

I have got a few more I am going to post including a Bluegill pattern that I tried...Robert

Really awesome. You get good scale effect, even on your foil (I am real impressed with that job). Looks like you maybe used a scale material under foil?? What ever you did it sure works. Fantastic.

Heck no, man. I've always been told there is no wrong way, just different ways. I did a foil job a couple of weeks ago using drywall web tape. It was awful, stripped all off and started again. Refoiled (with Dean's helpful advice) without any netting underneath the foil. Those baits came out better. But I will try your method this weekend, 'cause I like it.

Airbrush? You don't need no stinkin' airbrush! Like some else said (Ithink) you are a master with rattle cans. Keep up the wonderful work

I second that on the drywall net tape. I just finished foiling a bait that I used it on today. It doesnt look so great..............but it is way better than the paint job I attempted to put on it at first. I did this to try and save it.
