These are some of my latest repaints for some bass club members and I have got about 30 more on the rack.This little hobby has turned into quite a bit of work,but I love it.Don't get to visit here much anymore but I am still getting into the new house and chores are running out my ears.Tell me what you guys think.A TU member ask me to do a video,and as soon as I get my shop up and running I may try to do it(I will need some help on the video part).....Robert

Just give a shout - anything I can - I will do.
As always, your baits are looking good. Don't tell me your shop has been relocated... I thought your prior arrangement was perfect!

I may do that Spike when I get settled in the house and get some spare time.And yes my setup was perfect,but we have got a new supervisor and I haven't met him yet so I don't want to make a bad first impression.If he were to show up and I have my "paint booth" set up he might not understand,but I heard he was a fisherman.He needs to hurry up and come up there so I can get an idea of how he's going to be,because I have about 30 crankbaits I need to get done.The internet thing at work has really got me down,just have to find time to get on at home.
I started out with cheap walmart cans but they didn't do very well so it was on to the "high dollar":lolhuh:Krylon and it does pretty go.od.Now I do use some Rustoleum metal flake colors
Just take your time and be patient and use a lot of stencils,oh and a big imagination helps too.Like the guys say anything you see at any store and especially dollar stores could be a potential pattern or tool,like combs,forks,hair barrets,lace,drill bit sizing plates for eyes, the list is endless.I use a comb with curvy teeth(which is made for someone with a fro or long hair which is not me I barely can keep what little hair i've got)and net underneath to do the stripes on the Tru Gill.
Yea it is a spray can.
Thanks for all the kind words guys,it means alot to know I might, just might have some sort of talent(it sure ain't catching fish)....Rob
