Are you doing this manually or are you using a wheel? If you're doing it manually, what are your times for turning...every 5min, 15min?
I haven't done a lot like this,but I brushed it on and put my watch in front of me and turned them every minute for about 10 min.Kind of a pain but I don't have a wheel yet so I have to make due,besides I have 12hrs a shift to kill.
I was wondering what you bridge operators do all day!
This is what I do,the other guys watch t.v. most of the time.I am just filling in for now,I am use to real work.I am on Maintenance of our bridges.It would drive me crazy to just sit here.Oh,and sometimes I forget :whistle:and leave a rod or two in my truck and somehow it makes it to the bank for a little fishing around the first pier.
one question... how do you hold/position your stencils to get that faded effect? it seems to me that holding it too close to the lure will result in sharped-edged lines that wouldn't look as good.
It is a little tricky or atleast for me to keep the stencils still,but you can spray at an angle with the stencil lifted a little and get the faded look.You are right about the sharp edged lines.I found that out on the first two or three I done.
